Hi Jaegeuk & Namjae,
Sure, we'll address your comments. And this version is RFC, just wanna to
make sure this feature is meaningful for f2fs project, and there is no obvious
mistake, e.g. missing some critical path.
And if you team has some special opensource test suites used in your daily
f2fs test cycle, pls. kindly share the info with us, then we can make sure our
patchset can pass these cases before we send out next version.
BTW, test the kernel source tree or kernel build is a good suggestion. thanks.
