    SubjectNo error when inotify_add_watch(/an/NFS/file)
    Dear Experts,

    NFS doesn't work with inotify (and it looks like it can't, certainly
    not before NFS v4.1). However, if I give an NFS filename to
    inotify_add_watch(), I don't get an error.

    If it indicated an error in this case then I could easily fall back to
    some sort of polling. Without an error, I need some other way to
    detect NFS (and any other non-inotify-compatible filesystems).

    Any thoughts?


    (If you Cc: me in any replies I'll see them sooner.)
