I've started to look at adding a new filesystem type to NetBSD. I have all
the information I need (for now) about the filesystem I want to implement.

Is there some information about how to write a new filesystem or just some
documentation about how it's supposed to work. Just looking at the source
of other filesystems gets confusing. Is it information in the 4.4BSD book by
McKusick and others?

Any ideas about where to start?
