    SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/7] fuse: check directory aliasing in mkdir
    > > Check the created directory inode for aliases in the mkdir() method.
    > Can't you use d_add_unique() here?

    The patch is checking for hashed aliases of an inode. E.g. if /foo is
    a directory and has a ID of 28, and mkdir /bar returns the same ID,
    then the mkdir should fail.

    It's an illegal for the filesystem to create two directories refering
    to the same inode.

    OTOH d_add_unique() is looking for unhashed aliases to resurrect,
    which may or may not make sense in fuse. I'll think about it a bit
