SubjectRe: PATCH: BeOS FS support for 2.2.16
Well, in looking at other kernel fs code, it seemed all the fs types were
three letter abbreviations. If that is not a requirement, then yes beos
is more natural. It is actually bfs, but SCO stuff conflicts there...

As for the 2.4 kernel version, I am hacking on it now. Mind you my
major contribution to this this far is updating prior work.
