1. detecting case-insensitivity (score: 1)

Is there a generic way to detect whether a given filesystem is case-insensitive? If not, how should it be done? (A bit in s_flags?) (Somebody recently pointed out to me that NFSv4 has a "case_insensi

I don't think there is a generic flag for it. We could trivially add one, I think, as it is generally a fixed property for the entire filesystem.... Cheers, Dave. -- Dave Chinner david@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Initial message But why does it need to detect that filesystem case-insensitive or not? In what use-case does it need to make such detection? With the best regards, Vyacheslav Dubeyko. slava@xxxxxxxx

So, I assume the following is totally wrong, but the basic idea (create a new flag, set it based on xfs_sb_version_hasasciici, check it in nfsd) would work? To be honest, I have no idea--it's not a

Looks mostly OK to me. I suspect that there are some applications out there that might care that Bruce and bruce are the same file for matching purposes (e.g. a file manager) .... Not sure what this

I suppose they could try the create and find out what happens. If they actually want to be able to predict collisions instead of recognizing them after the fact then they may need to know in more det

Right, unicode CI is a bitch to handle. There's still a lot of work to be done in XFS before that is supported. See: http://xfs.org/index.php/Unfinished_work#Support_for_unicode_.2F_utf8_filesystems

Can you add a new s_feature_flags instead of s_flags which is shared with the mount user ABI? MS_I_VERSION should also move there.

I was wondering about that. Yes, that makes a lot more sense, I'll work on it. --b.

Just something like this? --b. This is a property of the file system rather than a mount flag (even if it happens that ext4 uses a mount option to turn i_version updating on and off.) We expect there

Whoops, thanks. OK. (Why does it matter? I figured we can always extend it later.) --b.
