    From
    Subjectis there a COW inside the kernel ?
    Date
    hello !

    is there an equivalent of something like

    cowloop ( http://www.atconsultancy.nl/cowloop/total.html ) or md based cow
    device ( http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/br260/doc/report.pdf ),

    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 ?

    TIA
