Description Alexander Boström 2004-07-09 14:50:39 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Alexander Boström 2004-08-25 22:05:15 UTC
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.


Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2004-08-31 14:51:34 UTC
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!
