    SubjectRE: Problem with inotify
    Date
    Anton,

    I had used the 2.6.12 kernel with the latest Inotify. There was no
    "I_WILL_FREE" in the any place. And, there was no problem in compilation.

    I believe Inotify is very useful and should be included in the next versions
    of the kernel. Are there any ongoing plans for this?

    Thanks,

    Note I seem to remember you are using 2.6.12? If so I am not sure when
    the I_WILL_FREE stuff came into existence, so should inotify.c not
    compile after applying this patch just delete the " | I_WILL_FREE " in
    the two places it occurs introduced by the patch and all should be fine.

    Best regards,

    Anton
