Not all of the fixes will be at the kernel side. AFAIK the kernel side
is bug free (knock on wood).

The gamin inotify backend needs more work.

One thing I haven't figured out how to do is, when I get the UNMOUNT
event from inotify how do I notify the gamin client of this and that the
watcher is gone? (I think in gamin terms the subscription)

Also I notice I get duplicate events from gamin. Example:

I am watching /tmp/

I create a file /tmp/b

I get an event from gamin that 'b' exists. Then another that '/tmp/b'
exists. This doesn't seem right to me.. I am guessing this is just
legacy from FAM?
