Subject[RFC] Allow open intents to return a fully initialized file
From
Date
The following patch is to allow filesystems that support the lookup with
open intents optimization to return a fully initialized file pointer.

The main use for this is stuff like NFSv4 that does lookup + sets up
open state in a single atomic RPC call, and that wishes to cache the
state information in the struct file. Currently, the filesystem has to
save that state information, then hunt round for it in the open
file_operation (something which is race prone, and doesn't allow one to
clean up the mess if the VFS aborts the open before calling down to the
filesystem again).

The NFSv4 code that makes use of this patch may be found on

http://client.linux-nfs.org/Linux-2.6.x/2.6.12-rc1/

Comments appreciated.

Cheers,
Trond
