Subject: [PATCH] docs: filesystems: vfs: correct flag name
Date: Sun, 26 Jul 2020 20:43:40 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

There is no flag REMAP_CAN_SHORTEN.  Commit eca3654e3cc7 ("vfs: enable
remap callers that can handle short operations") that introduces this
text also introduces the flag REMAP_FILE_CAN_SHORTEN.  Change the name
in the documentation accordingly.
