If you mean the Linux kernel, the sentiment against it seems pretty

(That current IMON implementation is crappy is strike one, strike two
is that it can't be 100% reliable and there are race conditions,
strike three is that there's already some stuff in the kernel to do
change notification using signals or something.)

I think strike two is somewhat bogus, because the failure modes for
something like a file manager just don't matter. But the kernel guys
are worried no doubt that it'd be used for something like a database
where it matters.

Strike three is somewhat bogus too, because the signal stuff is pretty
unusably complicated. But maybe if you hide it behind the FAM daemon
it would be OK. Someone just has to port FAM to use this notification
