I have a rather unusual requirement for notification events.

I've had a brief look at the code but it doesn't look like it would
cater for it.

Would this allow me to receive a notification when a directory is
passed over during a path walk?

Could this strategy be adapted to notify an in kernel module?
Or is this overkill for what I'm asking?
