SubjectRe: [PATCH -V11 2/9] vfs: Add name to file handle conversion support

Sorry, I lost track of the previous argument. I thought that the
decision was to return just the file-identifying part of the filehandle
and let userspace tack on the uuid if that's what it wants? That seems
the more flexible approach at least.

Is there any legitimate reason to call this with nop == NULL? If not,
this should be a BUG() if we want to test for the case at all.

Some user documentation for the new interface would be helpful. (The
sort of information that would go into the man page eventually, if not
actually in man page format.)

I'm confused about units:

- the max_len parameter is in 4-byte units.
- So handle_size was also in 4-byte units before the above line.
- So f_handle->handle_size was also in 4-byte units? Then why
were we passing it to kmalloc? And isn't that a confusing
convention for the length passed in from userspace?

Don't we need to check for the special case retval == 255?

--b.
