Subject: [PATCH 2/2] IB/uverbs: Use anonymous inodes instead of private filesystem
Date: Wed, 27 Feb 2008 11:18:57 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <adafxveyzq6.fsf_-_@cisco.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <adak5kqyzv1.fsf@cisco.com> (Roland Dreier's message of "Wed, 27 Feb 2008 11:16:02 -0800")

Now that anonymous inodes allow us to control when fd_install() is
called, we can convert ib_uverbs to use them instead of its own
private infinibandeventfs virtual filesystem.  This removes a healthy
chunk of code and also deletes the last in-tree user of
get_empty_filp(), which makes Christoph Hellwig happy.

Tested with an app that uses the ib_uverbs event file interfaces.
