Subject: [Bug 42986] ext2_fs.h requires undefined type umode_t

--- Comment #11 from Theodore Tso <>  2012-03-27 06:17:59 ---
Yeah, but chmod is POSIX; EXT2_IOC_GETFLAGS is not.  And if you are using the
EXT2_IOC_GETFLAGS variant, then you're saying that you only care about it
working on ext2, and most programs hopefully aspire to more portability than
that.  I really doubt there are _that_ many ext2-specific program out there,
and the flags that can be set by IOC_GETFLAGS really are more esoteric than the
chmod flags.

In any case, Al Viro is carrying the patch in his tree, so ultimately it will
be up to him.
