    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.
