I have finally checked nullfs into the Savannah CVS:

$ cvs -z3 \
  -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/dazuko \
  co dazuko/nullfs

I am now carefully going through the details of nullfs. Particularly,
I want to investigate every VFS hook and document why nullfs is (or is
not) taking the hook. I am also documenting some details about what
nullfs is doing using the kerneldoc format.

It is quite an undertaking, but I think it is important. It is
especially useful for developers to understand what nullfs is doing
(which is really the whole point of nullfs). As an example, I've
already completed the dentry source file:


However, dentry.c does have an "XXX" that still needs to be
resolved. This is the kind of stuff I am finding by carefully going
through the code.
