Re: [Swift] LFS patch (Ia32c9c34)



I think, that changes that I made can be used by you "ZaitcevFS" all you need for this is just add support for it to LFS middleware or build your own middleware. And your middleware maybe will require special hooks (setup_partition) for prepare file system for files.

Most of patch code was restructured, most of logic was moved to middleware level and use hooks in Swift code. I create separate project (LFS middleware https://github.com/nexenta/lfs) for now there are only 2 supported file system types (XFS and ZFS) there. Also this middleware provide API for getting file system status information (for example, for ZFS it's current pool status, etc).
It sounds strange to make Swift aware of the specific LFS. One day I come
up with ZaitcevFS and what happens then? Patching Swift again I presume.

I wish Gluster people would stop delaying their competing LFS proposal
and finally submit it. Their code was out for a year, but they apparently
are content to carry a fork forever:

  http://review.gluster.com/3118<==== for 1.4.8
