Are there any real users of this FS? If my memory serves,
Adrian's plan was to add IFS support into the squid. I
wonder if it had happened and whether or not it actually
provides any real performance benefit.
I just thought about another thing IFS would be very useful for:
Helping to develop UFS journaling. Since the filesystem itself is
very simple, and directories are not present, it should be pretty
easy to journal, as the number of places that update the metadata is
pretty low. This should be extremely useful when testing out the
journal operations, once they have been implemented.
