SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/4] eCryptfs: ino_t to u64 for filldir

Btw, in ecryptfs_interpose(), you have:

inode = iget(sb, lower_inode->i_ino);

But you have to be *very* *very* careful doing that. i_ino may be ambiguous.
My suggestions to make i_ino bigger were turned down by Al Viro; and even it
were bigger, it might still not be unique.
