Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/3] change libfs sb creation routines to avoid collisions with their root inodes
Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2007 15:15:15 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <200701112015.l0BKFFX5011879@dantu.rdu.redhat.com> (raw)

Amateur mistake. Fix the if statement that I just added. That'll teach me to
not test these things.
