Linux file undelete
- Student: Samir Raizade (2007).
Implement file undelete in Linux.
Change the implementation of unlink to add the affected inode and its
path name to an in-core list, without decrementing the usage count of
the inode. Start a timer that on expiration completes the deletion.
Provide an undelete system call.
