|| ||[RFC PATCH] CMS minidisk filesystem support|
|| ||Sun, 21 Sep 2008 21:29:16 -0400|
here are patches to add support for reading CMS EDF filesystems. CMS is a
single user operating system that is part of IBM's z/VM. Even the tiniest
of z/VM installations will have a bunch of minidisks formated with this
filesystem. Think of it as the VFAT of s390 (in terms of popularity).
These patches are loosly based on cmsfs from 2.4.12-ac6.
I decided to send out these patches now even though they're not complete at
the moment. I plan to expand this description, expand the documentation,
and bunch of other things.
TODO list at the moment:
- file data translation (EBCDIC to ASCII)
- support for RECFM=V files
- better documentation
- cleanup the code
- ...and whatever else comes up
