https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=260241 Bug ID: 260241 Summary: [feature request] Provide a sysctl or fcntl that would return the list of paths for a given file descriptor Product: Base System Version: CURRENT Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com At least two projects are blocked on FreeBSD due to inability of such lookup: 1. sysutils/watchman 2. The USD project: https://github.com/PixarAnimationStudios/USD/blob/release/pxr/base/arch/fileSystem.cpp#L470 This was discussed in hackers@ around July 2021. It would be beneficial if sysctl or fcntl would be able to return a list of file paths for a given file descriptor. This list of paths can be empty when the file is deleted, or it can have multiple paths when the file is hard-linked. Yuri -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
