    SubjectGetting file attributes
    Hi All,
    I have been working on finding a system call that will retrieve the
    current file's attributes, especially the file owner and permissions. have
    seen VOP_GETATTR() in OpenBSD, which returns such information in a
    structure. Is there anything equivalent to this on the Linux kernel?
    I've been searching through the kernel code for something equivalent
    but my paths have lead me nowhere.
