Subject: [PATCH 00/12] docs: path-lookup: Update pathlookup docs
Date: Tue, 26 Jan 2021 15:24:31 +0800
Message-ID: <20210126072443.33066-1-foxhlchen@gmail.com> (raw)

The Path lookup is a very complex subject in VFS. The path-lookup
document provides a very detailed guidance to help people understand
how path lookup works in the kernel.This document was originally
written based on three lwn articles five years ago. As times goes by,
some of the content was outdated. This patchset is intended to update
the document to make it more relevant to current codebase.
