SubjectRe: [patch] inotify for 2.6.11

I presume you are talking about the ioctl. I have tried to engage you
and others on what exactly you prefer instead. I have said that moving
to a write interface is fine but I don't see how ut is _any_ better than
the ioctl. Write is less typed, in fact, since we lose the command
versus argument delineation.

But if it is a anonymous decision, I'll switch it. Or take patches. ;-)
It isn't a big deal.
