LogFS is a longstanding project by Jörn Engel to create a filesystem
for contemporary solid-state storage devices; it was last
in May, 2007.
Since then, LogFS has mostly disappeared from view. As of
November 20, though, LogFS
and, seemingly, ready for a mainline merge. Jörn says:
Logfs has been around a couple of times. Linus last word was "go
and don't come back until all format changes are done". Or
something along those lines at least.
Format changes are done. And I don't even intend to break
git-bisect for anyone crazy enough to use logfs for /.
Sufficiently crazy users seem to be relatively scarce so far. But having
more options for upcoming hardware can only be a good thing; it will be
interesting to see what results come out as people start to play with this
