The one I see is from V3, which was: "but no actual users.". There is code
in zcache (drivers/staging/zcache), and naturally the Xen one that utilize
this API (part of the cleancache API). I am probably missing other ones?

If you meant by "users" real human, there are also reports of folks using it
in Gentoo/SLES, and Oracle's own distro of course. Don't know what the
development version of Gentoo/SLES has right now.

Nothing in API changed since the last posting:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/9/3/383
and linux-next had been working with this patchset.

(you might better using http://archive.eqmx.net/btrfs/Sep10/index.html#msg4439)
to see the thread.

It probably would have been better to repost this "for 2.6.39 review"
but since Andrew Morton put this patchset in his branch it seemed
like it wasn't necessary.
