[Bug 264723] the KERN_LOCKF sysctl returns kl_file_fsid that doesn't match st_dev from stat()

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=264723 --- Comment #5 from Damjan Jovanovic <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- "fsid" is widely used as the name for dev_t fields in sys/user.h: struct kinfo_file, struct kinfo_ovmentry, struct kinfo_vmentry, and struct kinfo_vmobject use it. I don't think we should rename. We are not changing the meaning of the field, we're changing a meaningless field to meaningful field. Code can only break if it relies on meaningful values, but currently kl_file_fsid is meaningless, almost like an uninitialized variable. And it's only in CURRENT, so it can freely change. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
