Hi Frantisek,

I am happy to see that you were able to turn RedirFS into a project that
lives beyond your research. I enjoyed reading your thesis. It is quite
good, especially with the explanation of VFS on Linux. Such information
is actually quite hard to find. It was good to see everything summarized
in a single paper.

I was also happy to see that you are providing a Dazuko filter. This
makes it possible for Dazuko-based applications to use RedirFS without
requiring any re-compiling of the applications.

Dazuko 2.2.0 had an important bugfix related to a locking problem, so it
will be important that the patch is against 2.2.0. I will look into
merging the patch into the Dazuko codebase.

I look forward to seeing your progress with RedirFS (although I still
believe overlaying filesystems is the way to go for Dazuko).
