Subject: [PATCH v2 01/12] docs: path-lookup: update follow_managed() part
Date: Tue, 16 Mar 2021 13:47:16 +0800
Message-ID: <20210316054727.25655-2-foxhlchen@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210316054727.25655-1-foxhlchen@gmail.com>

No follow_managed() anymore, handle_mounts(),
traverse_mounts(), will do the job.
see commit 9deed3ebca24 ("new helper: traverse_mounts()")
