SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/8] ecryptfs: Pushdown the bkl from ioctl
On Wed May 19, 2010 at 07:24:08PM +0200, Frederic Weisbecker (fweisbec@gmail.com) was quoted:

I've been sitting on a bug fix for a while that cleans up the eCryptfs
ioctl code. eCryptfs doesn't need the BKL itself and can leave that
decision up to the lower file sytem. The patch I have written should
cover what you're trying to do here, too. I'll respond with the patch
and if you think it looks good, I'll carry it in my tree and ask Linus
to pull soon.

I reuse vfs_ioctl(), which must be exported, so I should get Al's ack.
