[PATCH -V8 4/9] vfs: Allow handle based open on symlinks
The patch update may_open to allow handle based open on symlinks. The file handle based API use file descritor returned from open_by_handle_at to do different file system operations. To find the link target name we need to get a file descriptor on symlinks. Signed-off-by: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar(a)linux.vnet... 17 May 2010 02:39
[PATCH -V8 5/9] vfs: Support null pathname in readlink
From: NeilBrown <neilb(a)suse.de> This enables to use readlink to get the link target name from a file descriptor point to the link. This can be used with open_by_handle syscall that returns a file descriptor for a link. We can then use this file descriptor to get the target name.

[PATCH 1/3] Add flag to identify block swap devices
Added SWP_BLKDEV flag to distinguish block and regular file backed swap devices. We could also check if a swap is entire block device, rather than a file, by: S_ISBLK(swap_info_struct->swap_file->f_mapping->host->i_mode) but, I think, simply checking this flag is more convenient.
