    Phoronix: EXT4 Patch For Statx Support

    The statx system call was added to Linux 4.11 for providing enhanced file stats. While the statx() system call is in place for Linux 4.11, not all of the file-systems yet support it...

        so why he doesn't write in a way all users can understand the argument preferring to use an encrypted dialogue!?

          because that's the name of the syscall. many syscalls have such short names.

            What does this mean in terms of support for rich ACL's in Linux?
            Does this patch series makes it possible to convert all ACL information from
            a ntfs Windows partition to an ext4 Linux partition and back without acl data loss?

            What will the impact of this and other statx work be on the rich acls patches?

              These are unrelated patches. statx could returns more information about a file (like the creation time); richacl are used to control the access to a file/directory by an user as windows does (which is more flexible (+) and complicated (-) ).

                It's a stupid thing that lots of developers follow, because of lazyness I assume, continuing to make Linux as much as user-unfriendly as possible.
                No wonder Linux is where it is in Marketshare.

                  Why the F would any user ever run into a syscall name in the first place? That makes no sense at all.

                  As for developer friendliness, I think you'll find the majority tend to like shorter names and complain loudly when they have to type out longer ones.

                    Still don’t understand the significance of creation date/time...
