SubjectRe: UVFS Yet another user space filesystem kit.

How do you solve deadlocks on writing?

[Imagine so many dirty buffers are in memory that your
filesystem-in-userspace-daemon was swapped out?]

[Miklos, Cc-ed to you. You have that problem too. And it probably has
same solution like those untrusted filesystems -- back it up by a file.]
