<VedantT>Recently I was studying some files used in building the Hurd Translator, referencing to firmlink.c I was wondering what the use of a firm link is if it is only responsible for redirecting to a parent lookup. Would it also be possible to explain what it means "by name" and not "by target"?
<VedantT>I was wondering if this open issue has been resolved yet?
<VedantT>I noticed attempts of previous patches of mmap for NFS but either did not work or were unmerged
<jpoiret>does Hurd re-use PIDs more frequently than on Linux?
<jpoiret>from what I can gather, Linux just increments a counter, so it's unlikely that PIDs are re-used in quick succession
