    Can you be a bit more specific?

    Did you actually look or did you just get hives when you saw "glue code"? The
    current glue code is very far from what was in the original patch set. In the
    first set there were all sorts of abstractions which have been purged and
    almost entirely removed.

    The current "glue code" really just partitions off the vfs interaction from
    the file system internal operations.

    This partitioning serves a purpose: it allows the code to be easily integrated
    into applications etc (ie outside of the kernel) and also allows the
    multi-version code to be supported more cleanly. Multi-version is incredibly
    important in the RealWorld (TM).

    Thanks. I'll try those.

    It does pass fsx and some other tests.
