I was sure I had subscribed to that new list.
I've done so again in any case.

Patches should still go to address@hidden BTW.

I'm just catching up on work after holidays,
but a quick note Re: `cp --reflink`

We were trying to come up with a generic term for the CoW feature.
For BTRFS, `cp` currently needs to copy attributes explicitly,
but for OCFS2 we can just do the reflink and not bother with
all the attribute copying.  The interface is fine as is I think.
If there is a generic interface for CoW in future, we can use that.
