    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 ?
