Hi Fedora kernel-team,
The vboxsf file-system driver for accessing folders shared by a vbox host
from a (Fedora) guest
has finally been merged upstream in 5.6-rc1.
I've discussed how to move forward with this with Sergio (in the Cc)
who currently maintains a kmod for this in rpmfusion.
Sergio's preference is to switch to the in tree version ASAP.
As such I would like to backport the 5.6 patch to 5.5 and at it to
the stabilization branch, if this is ok with you ?
This will be a single patch adding a new fs/vboxsf directory
and a single new Kconfig option, the fs-driver is fully self
contained and this patch can be dropped when we switch to the 5.6
I am okay with this, though 5.5 is on F31 now, so you can skip
Thanks for coordinating with Sergio.
