[19.04 FEAT] zdsfs: Online VTOC refresh update

Bug #1814538 reported by bugproxy on 2019-02-04

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu on IBM z Systems

Skipper Bug Screeners

Bug Description

A Linux application can access new data sets that were created after zdsfs was mounted without the need to remount zdsfs

Business Value:
By removing the need to unmount/remount the zdsfs file system to access new data sets, the number of use cases for which customers can deploy Linux on Z together with z/OS is increased.

- zdsfs uses ECKD Reserve/Release to serialize access to the VTOC information whenever the list of available data sets is queried (readdir, open)

Will be made available with s390-tools 2.8.0
