D_ADD_CI(9) The Linux VFS D_ADD_CI(9)NAMEd_add_ci - lookup or allocate new dentry with case-exact name
struct dentry * d_add_ci(struct dentry * dentry, struct inode * inode,
struct qstr * name);
the negative dentry that was passed to the parent´s lookup func
the inode case-insensitive lookup has found
the case-exact name to be associated with the returned dentry
This is to avoid filling the dcache with case-insensitive names to the
same inode, only the actual correct case is stored in the dcache for
For a case-insensitive lookup match and if the the case-exact dentry
already exists in in the dcache, use it and return it.
If no entry exists with the exact case name, allocate new dentry with
the exact case, and return the spliced entry.
