 Sure. The conclusion from the previous discussion round was:
        1. Write section 4 pages for each file system (or fs component);
           i.e. e.g. tmpfs(4), mfs(4), genfs(4), and so on.
        2. When appropriate, append the section 4 pages with the layout and
           used structures; i.e. e.g. tmpfs(5), mfs(5), ffs(5), and so on.
        3. Write section 9 pages for the actual KPI.
        4. Once the above are done, consider a summary page.
 The case (1) is doable without too dense file system hacking background, and
 I happy to commit each well-written page. This can include, for instance,
 general description and notes, pros & cons, history, authors, pointers to
 further documentation, and so on. The case (3) obviously requires some
 background in actual file system programming.
