"Logfs file system" might make sense. LOGFS_FS is something I would
rather avoid. For some reason my brain reacts strongly to repetition,
redundancy and superfluous information.

I keep hearing that and I also continue to forget it. It shouldn't
matter either way, because it simply makes no sense to merge 15 seperate
patches file-by-file for something that is functionally one change. The
split is all about review and has nothing to do with merging.

But if I finally remembered it, at least these comments would cease.
I'll try.


Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, but
not tried it.
