    So it has come to this.

    I'm an
    American so I came prepared with two pistols, an AR15, and a Barrett .50 cal waiting over yonder in case I gotta take cover kill a tank.

    And the function should be called either d_prolisuicide()​ or d_filisuicide(). Genocide is a whole ethnic group or society whereas prolicide and filicide are killing your kids and suicide is killing yourself. There's also familicide and d_familisuicide(), but that has a larger range than just your children and yourself. So there y'all have it, various ways to describe family-based murder-suicides in Latin.

    To elaborate a bit: what that function does (well, tries to do - it has
    serious limitations, which is why there is only one caller remaining and
    that one is used only when nothing else can access the filesystem anymore)
    is "kill given dentry, along with all its children, all their children,
    etc."

    Phoronix: Atomic Async Page Flips Expected To Land For Linux 6.8

    Following yesterday's week drm-misc-next pull that added the new Imagination PowerVRM DRM driver, the three patches for atomic DRM_MODE_PAGE_FLIP_ASYNC were queued into drm-misc-next. Now that this atomic async page flip support is in drm-misc-next, next week it should appear in DRM-Next and in turn make it for the Linux 6.8 kernel in the new year...
