I'd like to second Ted's call for a good fs test suite. This would help
greatly in eliminating obscure fs bugs, and would guard against
accidental breakage when things are changed in the kernel. We really
need a more formalized set of testing procedures, and running an
expanding set of test suites would be a good start.

This would be an excellent project for someone looking for a way to help
improve the kernel.

Regards,
Bill
