SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 05/11] add generic checkpoint f_op to ext fses

Note that as far as I understand, ext4 does _not_ support a "relink"
operation. By "re-link" I mean an operation that re-links an (orphan)
inode to a filename. (By "orphan" I mean a file that was opened and
unlinked, so it does not appear in any directory anymore).

This feature is very useful to efficiently checkpoint unlinked files.

Oren.
