title="Add directory notify to kqueue"
Right now kqueue, the kernel event mechanism, only attaches to individual
files. This works great for sockets and the like but doesn't help for a
directory full of files.
The end result should be feature parity with linux's inotify (a single dir worth
of notifications, not necessarily sub-dirs) and the design must be good enough
to be accepted by other users of kqueue: osx, freebsd, etc
I believe most of the work will be around genfs, namei, and vfs.
