2018-06-11autofs: remove left-over autofs4 stubsLinus Torvalds1-9/+0
There's no need to retain the fs/autofs4 directory for backward compatibility. Adding an AUTOFS4_FS fragment to the autofs Kconfig and a module alias for autofs4 is sufficient for almost all cases. Not keeping fs/autofs4 remnants will prevent "insmod <path>/autofs4/autofs4.ko" from working but this shouldn't be used in automation scripts rather than modprobe(8). There were some comments about things to look out for with the module rename in the fs/autofs4/Kconfig that is removed by this patch, see the commit patch if you are interested. One potential problem with this change is that when the fs/autofs/Kconfig fragment for AUTOFS4_FS is removed any AUTOFS4_FS entries will be removed from the kernel config, resulting in no autofs file system being built if there is no AUTOFS_FS entry also. This would have also happened if the fs/autofs4 remnants had remained and is most likely to be a problem with automated builds. Please check your build configurations before the removal which will occur after the next couple of kernel releases.

2008-10-16autofs4: add miscellaneous device for ioctlsIan Kent1-1/+1
Add a miscellaneous device to the autofs4 module for routing ioctls. This provides the ability to obtain an ioctl file handle for an autofs mount point that is possibly covered by another mount. The actual problem with autofs is that it can't reconnect to existing mounts. Immediately one things of just adding the ability to remount autofs file systems would solve it, but alas, that can't work. This is because autofs direct mounts and the implementation of "on demand mount and expire" of nested mount trees have the file system mounted on top of the mount trigger dentry. To resolve this a miscellaneous device node for routing ioctl commands to these mount points has been implemented in the autofs4 kernel module and a library added to autofs. This provides the ability to open a file descriptor for these over mounted autofs mount points. Please refer to Documentation/filesystems/autofs4-mount-control.txt for a discussion of the problem, implementation alternatives considered and a description of the interface.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
