hi,

i have an application which calls readdir(3) for
accessing directories in tmpfs. after several hours
the readdir call returns sometimes with einval. under
which circumstances can readdir(3) produce einval ?

Are you sure it is readdir(3) and not readdir(2) ?

It seems there is only one return value for readdir(3): EBADF.

But readdir(2) have a EINVAL return value.
Man page say: "EINVAL: Result buffer is too small."

Regards,
Alain.


It is readdir(3) !!! It is only used to get all the filenames
for later removal (some hundred msecs later)... The directory
is part of a tmpfs because other filesystems are to slow.
