Subjectis there a COW inside the kernel ?
hello !

is there an equivalent of something like

cowloop ( ) or md based cow
device ( ),

i.e. a feature called "Copy On Write Blockdevice" inside the current or the
near-future mainline kernel (besides UserModeLinux Arch)?

i'm not sure - i think i remember having read that something like this can
be probably done , but i don`t remember anymore what it was.

i would find this useful for several purpose, but i don`t want to patch my
system with 3rd party drivers or "non-standard" stuff - or even recompile
the kernel.

can someone help out with some information ?
