For testing I have a simple windows program to activates change
notification for a given directory on
the Samba side. I can then see what is happening when I copy, remove or
delete files (this is
what I tested). The Samba server is Suse 8.1 with the latest 2.4 kernel
and Samba 2_2 CVS,
my client is a W2K WS.
When I check the signal_handler() function in notify_kernel.c I can see,
that after starting a new
smbd I get a signal when I copy/move/delete a file. For copy this
happens only once, for
rename/delete signal_handler is called every time.
When I check the kernel_remove_notify() / kernel_register_notify()
functions which have to be
called every time after a signal is received, they only get called for
move or delete operations.
As I understand the code the actual change notification processing is
initiated by the
process_pending_change_notify_queue() function. This function doesn't
get called when I copy
a file to the directory with change notification activated. For rename
or delete this works.
