[CFT][PATCH 07/10] kernfs: Add support for always empty directories.

Eric W. Biederman ebiederm at xmission.com
Thu May 14 17:34:37 UTC 2015


Add a new function kernfs_create_empty_dir that can be used to create
directory that can not be modified.

Update the code to use make_empty_dir_inode when reporting a
permanently empty directory to the vfs.

Update the code to not allow adding to permanently empty directories.
