lookup operation query.
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi All, I have couple of questions in filesystems area. 1) I want to understand how lookup operation (of inode operation) find if current dirent is actually a directory or mount point? 2) if a write happening in mid of a file (and mid of a page frame once pulled in to memory) and write at that location lead to split of that page, but doesn't completely fill the second page. in this case, clearly there is some space unfilled in second page. (I read this is going to be filled with '0's) but how read/write rotines of filesystem exactly calculates the offsets in this case correctly. These can be simple questions. but I want to know how these are handled, in say ext3 or any filesystem. thanks Rajesh _______________________________________________ Kernelnewbies mailing list Kernelnewbies@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies
