dd? You haven't got any device file to have a dump. I think we're going
a bit out of scope. I had some doubt to support rootfs in pram and after
some feedback and the comments of this review I think I'll remove it
from the next release (to understand some aspects of this fs with the
kernel community was my main goal for this review). I agree to use the
native endian. As I said the important thing is that if an user want to
use it in a 64bit environment then the fs must work well and then it
must be designed to support even this situation, I think it's obvious.
