    Actually, I believe that my application requires this functionality. I
    am doing a specialized type of RAID thingy that doesn't fit well into
    the framework of any of the raid personalities that MD currently uses.

    And to be more precise, I don't really want to do "file" I/O as much
    as I want to do "block device" I/O. I want to write to /dev/sdb3 or
    a loopback driver, not actually an ext2 file.
