It is possible to try though. I'm still busy to implement other tux3
codes. (Working on better fsync/sync)

For now, it is low priority for me. Because FS needs to some rewrite to
use page fork model, and it will take long time discussion/flames to
merge. (There were some discussions on lkml in past.)

Well, I guess, the way to merge is to prove the nearly complete good FS
based on those infra to them, and works better than existing FSes.
