This is weird. How come no mention is made of FAM and Gamin ? These have been doing more or less what is described here for years now. FAM originated withing SGI and then was integrated into linux. Gamin was a simpler reimplementation stipping away some unneeded high-end features related to clustering (IIRC). This newfangled kfsmd seems to be the newest take on this theme. I would have expected an explanation as to how this thingy relates to these earlier efforts. Or am I completely wrong?
