#include <unistd.h> int
undelete (const char *path);
system call attempts to recover the deleted file named by
Fa path .
Currently, this works only when the named object
is a whiteout in a union file system.
The system call removes the whiteout causing
any objects in a lower layer of the
union stack to become visible once more.
functionality may be expanded to other file systems able to recover
deleted files such as the log-structured file system.
