inotify: tail drop inotify q_overflow events
Eric Paris [Mon, 17 Aug 2009 01:51:49 +0000 (21:51 -0400)]
In f44aebcc the tail drop logic of events with no file backing
(q_overflow and in_ignored) was reversed so IN_IGNORED events would
never be tail dropped.  This now means that Q_OVERFLOW events are NOT
tail dropped.  The fix is to not tail drop IN_IGNORED, but to tail drop
Q_OVERFLOW.
