Subject[PATCH 01/17] uapi: General notification queue definitions [ver #5]
From
Date
Add UAPI definitions for the general notification queue, including the
following pieces:

(*) struct watch_notification.

This is the metadata header for notification messages. It includes a
type and subtype that indicate the source of the message
(eg. WATCH_TYPE_MOUNT_NOTIFY) and the kind of the message
(eg. NOTIFY_MOUNT_NEW_MOUNT).

The header also contains an information field that conveys the
following information:

- WATCH_INFO_LENGTH. The size of the entry (entries are variable
length).

- WATCH_INFO_ID. The watch ID specified when the watchpoint was
set.

- WATCH_INFO_TYPE_INFO. (Sub)type-specific information.

- WATCH_INFO_FLAG_*. Flag bits overlain on the type-specific
information. For use by the type.

All the information in the header can be used in filtering messages at
the point of writing into the buffer.

(*) struct watch_notification_removal

This is an extended watch-removal notification record that includes an
'id' field that can indicate the identifier of the object being
removed if available (for instance, a keyring serial number).
