    Subject[PATCH -V22 00/14] Generic name to handle and open by handle syscalls
    Date
    Hi,

    The below set of patches implement open by handle support using exportfs
    operations. This allows user space application to map a file name to file
    handle and later open the file using handle. This should be usable
    for userspace NFS [1] and 9P server [2]. XFS already support this with the ioctls
    XFS_IOC_PATH_TO_HANDLE and XFS_IOC_OPEN_BY_HANDLE.

    [2] http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.qemu/68992

    git repo for the patchset at:
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kvaneesh/linux-open-handle.git open-by-handle

    Test case can be found at
    http://git.kernel.org/?p=fs/ext2/kvaneesh/handle-test.git
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/fs/ext2/kvaneesh/handle-test.git

    Changes from V21:
    a) move inode->i_nlink == 0 check from file system link callback to VFS
