Re: [RFC][PATCH] (#4) auditfs



Just a heads up.

I've come across several glaring bugs (such as creating a cache with
the wrong struct sizing), a couple bugs in audit_watch(), etc.  I've
also reduced redundant code and made some of my helper functions
tighter.  I'll be releasing an intermediary patch that has all these
changes, including the elimination of whitespaces and other bogus
information in the patch.  I hope this patch will pretty much be patch
#5 without the remaining feature to list all the watch points
currently in the FS.

On a similar note,

I'd like to start getting feedback on linux-fsdevel with a CC directly
to Al Viro about the design itself.  What do you all think of this
approach?  Or perhaps I should bring it directly to LKML?  Should I
wait until the intermediary patch #5 is completed and tested before I
start any dialog?  I personally think overlapping the two would be
fine.  The reason I think this is because the first major stumbling
block has nothing to do with the implementation itself, but the design
and all the philosophy and politics surrounding it.  As soon as I
mention "filesystem auditing" I've noticed that people get antsy and
immediately try to beat it down like a pianta made out of software
patents J/K.  Thus I feel a large part of this endeveour is going to
revolve around explanation.  Do you agree?  I'd appreciate some
feedback.
