Hi Ognyan,

Thanks a lot for your great work so far!

> Original Submission:  Finally, the patch is prepared to enter the Hurd.

This is good to hear.  My first impression of the patch was good (by
reading over it very quickly).

I have some comments so far, I will continue to read the patch and
test it later this weekend.

The changelogs can use some work AFAICS.  For example you notice when
you add new local variables, I would not do this.  Another thing you
do is:

        (DC_DONT_REUSE): Likewise.
        (struct disk_cache_info): New struct.
        Add declarations for disk_cache_bptr, disk_cache_info,
        disk_cache_lock and disk_cache_remapping.
        Add declarations for functions disk_cache_map,
        disk_cache_block_ref, disk_cache_block_ref_ptr,
        disk_cache_block_deref and disk_cache_block_is_ref.
        Add declaration for map_hypermetadata.
        (bptr_index): New macro.
        (boffs_ptr): Instead of macro, now it's inline function that uses

I have copied some of the context.  You should do the same for
disk_cache_map, disk_cache_lock and whatever variables, functions and
macros you add as you did for bptr_index.  If you are in doubt, just
read:

http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards_40.html#SEC40

And I noticed you include the ChangeLog entries in the patch,
personally I don't like this, also because you already included it.

I wanted to test the patch before reading it in detail, so I just
did.  When I used it on a small partition it worked for me.  After
that I made a 10GB partition in GNU/Linux, I put about 2.7GB of data
on it.  When I tried copying a directory to this partition an
assertion was triggered.  Here is some information that can hopefully
help you finding the problem:


ext2fs.static.2: ../../hurd/ext2fs/ext2fs.h:330: boffs_ptr: Assertion `ptr' 
failed.


(I put the backtraces at the end of the mail)

Perhaps I can debug this problem myself, but I am not promising
anything. :)

Ok.  I will continue reading the patch and test it.  This is just what
I found so far.

Is there any way to prevent breaking the ABI?  And do you think the
changes can be made in a better way?

Thanks,
Marco
