Poul-Henning hatte mal den Gedanken, daß man nur eine Klasse von
Devices überhaupt noch benötigen würde. Die kann sich dann
normalerweise wie ein raw device verhalten und der mount(2)-Syscall
benutzt automatisch stattdessen intern einen anderen Eintrittspunkt, der
den buffer cache ins Spiel bringt.

Einfach gesagt, nun muß es ,,nur noch'' jemand implementieren.

:UTSL: // /n./ [Unix] On-line acronym for `Use the Source, Luke' (a
   pun on Obi-Wan Kenobi's "Use the Force, Luke!" in "Star
   Wars") -- analogous to {RTFS} (sense 1), but more polite. This
   is a common way of suggesting that someone would be better off
   reading the source code that supports whatever feature is causing
   confusion, rather than making yet another futile pass through the
   manuals, or broadcasting questions on Usenet that haven't attracted
   {wizard}s to answer them.

   Once upon a time in {elder days}, everyone running Unix had
   source. After 1978, AT&T's policy tightened up, so this
   objurgation was in theory appropriately directed only at associates
   of some outfit with a Unix source license. In practice, bootlegs
   of Unix source code (made precisely for reference purposes) were so
   ubiquitous that one could utter it at almost anyone on the network
   without concern.

   Nowadays, free Unix clones have become widely enough distributed
   that anyone can read source legally. The most widely distributed
   is certainly Linux, with variants of the NET/2 and 4.4BSD
   distributions running second. Cheap commercial Unixes with source
   such as BSD/OS are accelerating this trend.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
