To avoid sending a pure test message and being banned from the list,
I'll have to add something useful as well... cowlinks.

Matt and Herbert have told me they really want that project to get
finished asap - reason enough for me to give it some more focus again.

The patches on the webpage got updated and now include a fix from
Herbert. Thanks for that one! If noone beats me to it, I'll check
with Andrew Morton whether the three infrastructure patches can be
included into -mm.

Madcow is called mad because it's just that. You have to decide
whether you want hard links or cow links. Either get rid of hard
links completely and confuse some programs. Or use them for some
directory trees only and get problems whenever moving between
madcow-trees and regular trees. Not good.

A real cowlink patch is started but still quite ugly. It's a bit
embarrasing, but if people don't care and want to test it anyway,
feedback is always welcome. I'll try to add some design details to
the webpage soon.

So if anyone want to participate in any way - coding, testing,
discussion, userspace programs, documentation, whatever - please let
me know. Help is always appreciated.

Oh yes, the web page is here:
