DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2010-02

:Btw, that should be already possible using multiple HAMMER volumes.
:The SSD partition should be made the root volume. It can be very
:small, so that only the UNDO log fits on it (maybe a GB?), the second volume
:would then be the regular hard disk. Maybe we'd need to give newfs_hammer
:a specific option so that it treats all space of the first volume as UNDO
:uses the second volume for storage.
:I think I can implement that. Matt, do you think the option to newfs_hammer
:a good idea?
Not for newfs_hammer. It would be a good fit for the hammer
volume-add directive, though.
You could add a feature where it adds the volume and moves the
UNDO FIFO into it. volume-del might also have to be adjusted to
move the UNDO FIFO back out (I don't recall offhand if it moves
I have to say though that I am a bit on fence. I don't like the
idea of the filesystem becoming non-operational if you pull the
SSD, which is what would happen.
