SubjectRe: Linux 2.0 and 2.1 stability..
Well, the author of NTFS doesn't want his read-only code to be included in
2.1.x and the author of HFS hasn't released a new version since the dcache
stuff was introduced a while back. I guess these are 2.3.x material after
all.

(It would have been nice to see them in 2.2, though. sigh...)
