Subject: [PATCH 2/2] NFS: Return -ETXTBSY when attempting to write to a swapfile
Date: Fri,  8 Nov 2019 16:02:24 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Anna Schumaker <>

My understanding is that -EBUSY refers to the underlying device, and
that -ETXTBSY is used when attempting to access a file in use by the
kernel (like a swapfile). Changing this return code helps us pass
xfstests generic/569
