[GIT PULL] overlayfs updates for 6.8

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Linus,

Please pull overlayfs updates for 6.8.

This is a very small update with no bug fixes and no new features.

The larger update of overlayfs for this cycle, the re-factoring
of overlayfs code into generic backing_file helpers, was already
merged via a PR that I had sent Christian before the merge window.

This branch has been sitting in linux-next for a few weeks and
it has gone through the usual overlayfs test routines.

The branch merges cleanly with master branch of the moment.


The following changes since commit 98b1cc82c4affc16f5598d4fa14b1858671b2263:
