Yes, I know that it's less fun that talking about your rather vague ideas of how the things (surely) work, but it just might avoid the feats of idiocy like the above. Andy, I don't know how to put it more plainly: read the fucking source. Even grep would do. The same NFS you've granted (among the "handful" of filesystems) an exception, *DOES* *CALL* *THE* *FUCKING* sget(). Yes, really. And in some obscure cases (including the one mentioned upthread) it does reuse a pre-existing superblock. For a very good reason.  such as, oh, mounting two filesystems from the same server with default options - who would've ever thought of doing something so perverted? _______________________________________________ tomoyo-dev-en mailing list email@example.com https://lists.osdn.me/mailman/listinfo/tomoyo-dev-en
