    SubjectRe: what is necessary for directory hard links
    Some people seem to think that I am proposing to do something.
    Understand that I have done it for 2.6.17-rc4 and am currently
    involved in bringing it forward to newer kernels.

    > What is the parent of a hard linked directory? What is the parent if

    The parent is any and all directories that contain a link to the
    stated directory. ".." points back along the path the referrer used
    to reach the current directory (this behavior is already in kernel:
    didn't have to lift a finger to get it).
    To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
