Changes needed to the file_info structure

I am contemplating changes to the file_info structure or creating a
I need two things in clitar:
1. I need dynamic length file names, so the pstring structure no longer
suits. This is needed to properly handle some of the long directory
names we might encounter in clitar.
2. I need to link directory names together so that I can set the mtime
correctly. I need a simple doubly linked list here so I can insert things
at the tail and go back up the list and go down the list as well.
This is needed so we can set the mtime correctly on a directly. You
have to set it after you have finished with the directory.
The current file_info structure is:
/* these times are normally kept in GMT */
I need to change the name entry to char *name and then to dynamically
allocate that. I also want to add:
file_info *next, *prev;
so I can link these things together.
As I am going to be recording the path from the root of the tree to the
current directory in this structure, and adjusting the list as I change
directory (either adding a new node on the end as the tree deepens, or
backtracking [and changing mtime on the SMB server as I leave a subtree],
unlinking and relinking) I will need a few simple operations.
I was thinking of adding them to a separate cli_utils.c or something like
that and adding a file_info2 structure for the moment.
Does anyone have any other suggestions.
