Hot off the presses:
This patch is the result of marathon work by David Rhodus and I over
the last two days to test, locate, and fix bugs related to the VFS
work. It fixes a couple of ref counting issues, an installworld
deadlock, a NFS server directory scanning panic, and a few other
The NFS server is now considered to be quite solid with this patch.
If all the bugs are not yet fixed there can't be more then one or two
left, not counting the non-working unionfs and nullfs.
HEADS UP - COMMIT SCHEDULE
If testing through today pans out I think it may be best to get the
work committed before I do the UNIONFS and NULLFS rewrite rather then
after. The patch set is already too big and I'd like it to get some
wider testing in parallel with my unionfs/nullfs work.
This will mean that UNIONFS and NULLFS will not work in HEAD for
a week or two. Those people using these filesystems should be sure to
run DragonFly_Stable kernels rather then HEAD for the next ~2 weeks.
