tail -f on UML doesn't succeed in following a file on hostfs. With strace, I
could see that while normally tail -f does an fstat64 every second to the
file, and checks things when it reports different datas, on hostfs the
fstat64 always returns the same file size and probably the same attributes.
I've seen this on 2.4.22-5um.
I think this is difficult since the VFS caches dentries and inodes, and the
change doesn't go through the VFS, but NFS exists and has probably already
faced such issues, so it could lead to solution.
