SubjectRe: [V9fs-developer] [PATCH] net/9p: avoid -ERESTARTSYS leak to userspace
From
Date
Hi Al,

I totally agree the Greg's suggestion, I think v9fs is the direction
as the VirtFS in the virtualization field, that it still deserves to
be used and developed, so I also suggestion you can apply (or nack)
the patch as v9fs maintainer, I hope you won't refuse.

Thanks,
Yiwen.
