[PATCH] support for the new ioctl based AFS interface in pam_krb5 minikafs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
OpenAFS and Arla has a new ioctl based interface that replaces the old
syscall. Since the syscall is gone, minikafs won't work with new
kernels and AFS clients. Attached is a patch that adds support for the
new interface in minikafs.

Patch to add procfs ioctl based AFS interface support.
Ok, so we don't love ioctls, but it's what we've got at the moment.
Also, until either the kernel implements the AFS syscall, minikafs
starts using the AFS ioctl or something else is done, minikafs won't
work at all.
I really haven't got a problem with ioctls. The patch doesn't need to
strdup() the path which was opened, though, the global could as easily
be a const pointer to the literal. Otherwise, looks good. Merging
into 2.1.2. Thanks!
