vfsx12.patch available - continuing vfs work (expert developers only)

    Another patch is available.  Again, only expert developers.

	fetch http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~dillon/vfsx12.patch

    This patch (hopefully) fixes a minor 'ln' bug that esmith found, and
    it also fixes cache timeouts for NFS clients (though there are probably
    a few issues remaining on the client side).

    I am continuing to work on the NFS server side issues.  I need to rework
    the way the 'fake' namecache records work and I also need to rework
    the reconnect/retry code.  I don't expect to commit anything to HEAD
    until after I have also gotten unionfs and nullfs rewritten.

From OpenBSD 3.5:
syslogd(8) now supports logging to memory buffers, to be read using 
syslogc(8). This is useful for diskless or flash-based computers.

    Looks fine.  -g makes sense... if we have a -u we might as well have
    a -g :-)

Apparently the names are so similar for you native English speakers... :P

vfsx13.patch available - continuing vfs work (expert developers only)

    The next patch is ready.

	fetch http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~dillon/vfsx13.patch

    This patch removes most of the old namecache API.  vfs_cache_lookup(),
    cache_lookup(), and cache_enter() are gone as of this patch, and namei()
    and lookup() are gone from prior patches.  This is a nice cleanup which
    removes a lot of the old API code.  This patch also cleans up the
    VOP_LOOKUP API.  It rips out VOP_CACHEDLOOKUP() and makes VOP_LOOKUP()
    just be a normal uncached directory lookup.  namecache operations are
    now handled by a kernel layer directly.

    Types of testing needed: normal filesystem testing.  In particular
    permissions testing to make sure that you can only create or delete
    files/dirs in places that you are allowed to.

    Still TODO:	NFS server, unionfs, nullfs.
