      Linux 2.6.13-rc3 · c32511e2
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Yeah, this time hopefully I'm not confusing the version
      numbers. The last release was -rc2, _this_ is -rc3.

      [PATCH] inotify · 0eeca283
      Robert Love authored
      inotify is intended to correct the deficiencies of dnotify, particularly
      its inability to scale and its terrible user interface:
      
              * dnotify requires the opening of one fd per each directory
                that you intend to watch. This quickly results in too many
                open files and pins removable media, preventing unmount.
              * dnotify is directory-based. You only learn about changes to
                directories. Sure, a change to a file in a directory affects
                the directory, but you are then forced to keep a cache of
                stat structures.
              * dnotify's interface to user-space is awful.  Signals?
      
      inotify provides a more usable, simple, powerful solution to file change
      notification:
      
              * inotify's interface is a system call that returns a fd, not SIGIO.
      	  You get a single fd, which is select()-able.
              * inotify has an event that says "the filesystem that the item
                you were watching is on was unmounted."
              * inotify can watch directories or files.
      
      Inotify is currently used by Beagle (a desktop search infrastructure),
      Gamin (a FAM replacement), and other projects.

      reiserfs: run scripts/Lindent on reiserfs code · bd4c625c
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This was a pure indentation change, using:
      
      	scripts/Lindent fs/reiserfs/*.c include/linux/reiserfs_*.h
      
      to make reiserfs match the regular Linux indentation style.  As Jeff
      Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com> writes:
      
       The ReiserFS code is a mix of a number of different coding styles, sometimes
       different even from line-to-line. Since the code has been relatively stable
       for quite some time and there are few outstanding patches to be applied, it
       is time to reformat the code to conform to the Linux style standard outlined
       in Documentation/CodingStyle.
      
       This patch contains the result of running scripts/Lindent against
       fs/reiserfs/*.c and include/linux/reiserfs_*.h. There are places where the
       code can be made to look better, but I'd rather keep those patches separate
       so that there isn't a subtle by-hand hand accident in the middle of a huge
       patch. To be clear: This patch is reformatting *only*.
      
       A number of patches may follow that continue to make the code more consistent
       with the Linux coding style.
      
       Hans wasn't particularly enthusiastic about these patches, but said he
       wouldn't really oppose them either.
