Description yuval yeret 2005-01-02 01:20:06 UTC
Today Samba doesn't provide a way to pass file creation time to an underlying FS
via the VFS layer. 

This is reasonable for traditional Unix FSs which don't really have a file
creation time field, but is insufficient for advanced FSs which try harder to be
an NTFS-like FS. 

Attached is a suggested patch, which extends the VFS layer to allow setting file
creation time. The default vfs doesn't do anything with it, but other custom
VFSs can use the passed information to do something smarter with it.

This patch works together with a custom VFS layer.

I have  a (different) patch that adds a VFS operation to set the create time.

the vfs layer was recently extended by toddd stecher with commit 48b0016cff4bad621b
