I'm using inotify for a project, and desperately require the functionality provided by this patch: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/758183
Can I apply this patch to my existing Linux kernel, or would a recompile be in order?
That is a patch to the Linux VFS. You will have to recompile the kernel, even if you eventually use ksplice to insert it into the running kernel.
