I have some questions, now we are speaking about devfs:
How hard would it be, and how usefull it would be, to make devfs completely
Some scenarios you can come up with is network-storage computing. An "exported"
block device, maybe a RAID or a simple harddisk drive that is then bound to a
raid, everything over network.
That'd be great, I mean, having a RAID on several machines that are maybe
rooms/metres away from each other sounds pretty usefull.
I think you get a pretty good picture and would love to have such things.
The question is: How hard is this to actually implement?
How is security and authentification handled?
