Hi, all. Version 12 of my devfs patch is now available from:

This is against 2.1.79. Highlights of this release:

- added inode check to <devfs_fill_file> function

- improved devfs support when mounting from devfs

- added call to <<release>> operation when removing swap areas on
devfs devices

- increased NR_SUPER to 128 to support large numbers of devfs mounts
(for chroot(2) gaols)

- fixed bug in SCSI disc support: was generating incorrect minors if
SCSI ID's did not start at 0 and increase by 1

- support symlink traversal when mounting root
