Judgment suggests I should drop this, but the problem is that you never
made a valid or well-informed point.

You started off with "Did you work for Microsoft?" and you followed up
with questions and critiques demonstrating no understanding whosoever
for the way that Linux dcache or inode management works and further that
you did not even read the patch.

My reply "well dnotify has this same issue" is not a rallying behind the
status quo (I mean, I want dnotify dead myself) but that no one
complains about the size issue with dnotify. John and I want to address
the issues with dnotify.

If we can do something about space consumption, and if it turns out to
be an issue, I am all for it. I do not yet see a way around it, and no
one has shown that normal use in the real world suffers from any issue.
