SubjectRe: Current NBD 'stuff'
Hi,

I am also looking for stuff NBD related, my first intention is studying
on nfsswap, but I've heard NBD is more efficient, is there any port of
nbd swap in the recent 2.4.1x kernels? I may do an up port is the code
is old, but hopefully something in 2.4 not 2.0 and 2.2 . Thanks.

regards,

David
