Ouch. Since the directory is already cached (you got the inode by reading a
directory, hopefully...), that change shouldn't make any difference.

If you want direct access to the news storage, then it'd be better to drop
the idea of a file system entirely. There are better ways... for instance,
a bunch of huge cyclic files (one for each range of article expiry dates).

Or whatever.
