+ <pinotree> youpi: i'm playing with pflocal, and noticing that a simple C
+ executable doesn't trigger reauthenticate
+ <pinotree> youpi: i've put a debug output (to file) in S_io_reauthenticate,
+ and with a simple C test (which uses unix sockets) it isn't called
+ <youpi> pinotree: it seems pflocal should return FS_RETRY_REAUTH in
+ retry_type
+ <youpi> to make glibc call reauthentication
+ <pinotree> pflocal?
+ <youpi> yes, in the dir_lookup handler
+ <pinotree> isn't that ext2fs?
+ <youpi> libtrivfs had dir_lookup() too
+ <youpi> trivfs_check_open_hook can be used to tweak its behavior
+ <pinotree> ah, missed that pflocal was using libtrivfs, sorry
+ <youpi> there are probably very few translators which don't use one of the
+ lib*fs :)
+ <antrik> pinotree: what are you trying to do with pflocal?
+ <pinotree> local socket scredentials (SCM_CREDS)
+ <antrik> ah
+ <antrik> don't really know what that is, but I remember reading some
+ mention of it ;-)
