Subject: bug#41855: [PATCH 0/2] hurd-boot: Cleanups: Remove MAKEDEV, then use setxattr (on the Hurd).

From: Jan Nieuwenhuizen <janneke@gnu.org>


Several variants of these patches were present on wip-hurd-vm before.

Currently, we are running MAKEDEV from activation, and thus need hurd, bash,
coreutils and sed in PATH.

The first patch replaces that with scheme code, which seems a no-brainer to
me.  Then we only need hurd in PATH for settrans and gettrans.

The second patch then switches to using setxattr instead of settrans; alas we
still need gettrans as getxattr behaves "funny" on translated nodes.  I
suppose that would be a question for the bug-hurd?


Jan (janneke) Nieuwenhuizen (2):
  hurd-boot: Create individual translators instead of running MAKEDEV.
  hurd-boot: Use 'setxattr' instead of invoking settrans.
