Subject: [ANNOUNCE] xfs-linux: vfs-for-next updated to 83d9088659e8

Hi folks,

The vfs-for-next branch of the xfs-linux repository at:


has just been updated.

After a very, very long process of discussing how sysadmins and app
programmers are supposed to tag files for DAX data access mode, we have
reached an agreement about how the userspace knobs should work.  This
first update contains the necessary documentation updates and statx mode
flag to enable the behaviors that we have decided on.  The second part
(hinting at inode eviction to change the DAX mode) will come later after
everyone has had a few days to let this soak in.

The new head of the vfs-for-next branch is commit:

83d9088659e8 Documentation/dax: Update Usage section
