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
