bool "Inotify support for userspace"
default y
Say Y here to enable inotify support for userspace, including the
associated system calls. Inotify allows monitoring of both files and
directories via a single open fd. Events are read from the file
descriptor, which is also select()- and poll()-able.
Inotify fixes numerous shortcomings in dnotify and introduces several
new features including multiple file events, one-shot support, and
unmount notification.
For more information, see <file:Documentation/filesystems/inotify.txt>
If unsure, say Y.
