Kernel source merge goof in include/linux/dcache.h

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6


  • Looks like a merge of include/linux/dcache.h duplicated some #defines for the symbols DCACHE_DISCONNECTED and DCACHE_NFSFS_RENAMED between RHEL6.1 and RHEL6.2 when cleaning up some comments.


Root Cause

There was a minor error in the port of commit 5f57cbcc02cf18f6b22ef4066bb10afeb8f930ff in that the old definitions of DCACHE_NFSFS_RENAMED and DCACHE_DISCONNECT were not removed.
