Subject[PATCH 09/20] fsnotify: implement a default maximum queue depth
Date
Currently fanotify has no maximum queue depth.  Since fanotify is
CAP_SYS_ADMIN only this does not pose a normal user DoS issue, but it
certianly is possible that an fanotify listener which can't keep up could
OOM the box. This patch implements a default 16k depth. This is the same
default depth used by inotify, but given fanotify's better queue merging in
many situations this queue will contain many additional useful events by
comparison.
