RFC: expensive lookup for unlink

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello,

for a network filesystem one should try to avoid all remote operations, if possible. So when I just want to unlink a file, it does not make too much sense to first send a lookup and once the dentry is fully established to unlink the file.

I think the simplest way to solve that is just to add a another nameidata flag (LOOKUP_UNLINK) and the file system may then just ignore the lookup request and fill in fake values.

Or are there any other suggestions to avoid a rather useless
network-lookup + network+unlink, so so combine it into one step?


Thanks,
Bernd
