- The "tail -f" command uses inotify for tracking changes in files. For remote file systems [-/,] inotify is not available. In the case of unknown file systems, for example panasas, "tail -f" failed instead of falling back to polling. Now, the list of known file systems is updated and "tail -f" is modified to fall back into polling for unknown file systems. As result, "tail -f" now works correctly, even on unknown file systems, with only a warning about the unknown file system and a fall back to polling.
- When parsing the file content and the end of a field was specified using the obsolete key formats (+POS -POS), the sort utility determined the end of the field incorrectly, and therefore produced incorrect output. This update fixes the parsing logic to match the usage of the "-k" option when using these obsolete key formats. The sort utility now returns expected results in this situation.
