Subject[RFC][PATCH 04/11] actually use f_op in checkpoint code
From
Date

Right now, we assume all normal files and directories
can be checkpointed. However, as usual in the VFS, there
are specialized places that will always need an ability
to override these defaults. We could do this completely
in the checkpoint code, but that would bitrot quickly.

This adds a new 'file_operations' function for
checkpointing a file. I did this under the assumption
that we should have a dirt-simple way to make something
(un)checkpointable that fits in with current code.

As you can see in the ext[234] and /proc patches, all
that we have to do to make something simple be
supported is add a single "generic" f_op entry.
