code divergence. It isn't hard necessarily, but there will be a lot of
I am going to continue to work on the userland VFS API, but I'll get
some of the device API changes done first so the device API stops
being a moving target. The device work has to run along the same
lines as the VFS work. Moving arguments into argument structures
and providing an abstraction layer (which are those SYSLINK commits I
made a few days ago) that will allow them to operate in userland over
a communications link.
I'll revisit the ATA code and see how Thomas is doing after I get
the device work done (which should be by the weekend).
