Hi! You are correct. Will be fixed in v18.

Now name check will be only for list_entry with vcn==0.

Can't agree here.
E.g. given list_entry: 0, 67, 89, 110, 137.
The function will return 89 as the similar thread stores the info about vcn==100.

Thanks for this. Fixed.

Will be fixed in v18 as well.

It's nice idea, we will appreciate such patch. But please keep in mind that
binary search will outperform linear dramatically only for heavily fragmented files.
By the way, the same idea of replacing linear with binary search is implemented in
index.c (please refer to NTFS3_INDEX_BINARY_SEARCH).

Also, your notes on attrlist.c led us to refactor this file. Thanks once again!
