Re: 2.1.43 curious pipe-entries in / (root)

Kevin Buhr:

: New code in 2.1.43 (see "get_pipe_inode" in "linux/fs/inode.c") puts
: entries for anonymous pipes into the root directory. The 6-digit
: number in the filename is the inode of the pipe.

Sounds like a bad idea. If these have to be there at all,
then a subdirectory (/proc/pipes ?) would probably be better.
