My First Linux Kernel Patch!

Category: kernelankitj @ 2:25 pm

Last year’s FOSS.IN had a Kernel Workout session, in which i participated and tried to do a task titled ‘implement XFS preallocation ioctls in the VFS’.
Christoph Hellwig helped me understand the problem and I had a preliminary patch ready in the session, which was improved later over email with his and Hari’s help and finally got merged into 2.6.31-rc1 :D

Here is the patch.

Thanks to FOSS.IN for this opportunity, and thanks to my friends for their support and encouragement :) Hopefully, this wont be the last ;)
