kernel patch instead of standalone module.

eyck
Hello,
 I would like to create kernel patch, in other word move fuse module
into kernel structures, so that it would be built together with the
rest of the kernel.
  Although it seems that for trying out standalone module is the
easiest for the user, kernel patch + config is easier to maintain in
the long run.
 What would be the shortest path to building something like that, or
maybe there already is such version available?

regards,

The -mm tree has included FUSE for quite some time now.  You may want to just
look into using -mm.  (Of course, it is a testing/unstable tree, so ... :) )

You can also extract just the fuse patches from -mm by downloading all
the patches beginning with fuse- from:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.12-rc6/2.6.12-rc6-mm1/broken-out/

And then applying to a clean tree in the order given in the series file:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.12-rc6/2.6.12-rc6-mm1/patch-series
