[PATCH 00/11] Improve rm speed
Fri Jan 15 13:45:23 GMT 2021
I have been working on speeding up rm.
The idea is to save on kernel calls.
While kernel calls are fast, not doing
them is still a lot faster.
I do think there is more to gain, but
before I proceed it's best to first see if
this is something you're willing to commit.
I guess the first five patches are trivial,
I would really like some feedback on the last six.
Also, I'd like to state: I provide my patches to
the Cygwin sources under the 2-clause BSD license
