cvs can't provide you with that kind of information, because it doesn't
remember it (cvs works on file-by-file base). But, it can tell you when
the 1.337 commit to vfs_syscalls.c happened.
$ cvs log -r1.337 vfs_syscalls.c
date: 2004/02/14 18:31:11; author: rwatson; state: Exp; lines: +8 -0
You can then use the archive of the cvs-src mailing list at
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/cvs-src/2004-February to find the
That should tell you all modified files in this commit.
