In 4.19 the dentry_update_name_case function was removed.

What's the replacement for this?


There is no replacement; the function was removed because its user, ncpfs, had been removed (as you know only too well). If you’re working on restoring ncpfs, I would consider adding the function locally in ncpfs.

  • Hey. I do not see that this function was part of ncpfs. I think the function was part of kernel in file fs/dcache.c b/fs/dcache.c . This file is not ncpfs. – Johannes C. Schulz Nov 13 '18 at 20:03
  • I didn’t say that it was part of ncpfs. It was used by ncpfs and nothing else; so instead of looking for a replacement, you could restore it, and to keep things “grouped together”, do so in ncpfs rather than the dcache. – Stephen Kitt Nov 13 '18 at 20:17
  • Ok. Will do so. Just does't want to double the functionality if there maybe was an alternative function. – Johannes C. Schulz Nov 13 '18 at 20:22
