Subject: Re: Making linkat() able to overwrite the target

Hi Omar,

Do you still have your AT_REPLACE patches?  You said that you'd post a v4
series, though I don't see it.  I could make use of such a feature in
cachefiles inside the kernel.  For my original question, see:

	https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-fs.git/log/?h=fscache-iter

And do you have ext4 support for it?
