That might be an idea, except at the moment we're still at the API phase: what information needs to be communicated and how? Stuff mentioned in the article like: order dependencies between blocks, indicating that the kernel cache is out of date, etc. Whether it's eventually implemented in the VFS or as ioctl()s on a fancy new filesystem is really beside the point.

I wonder if finding a way to expose parts of the JBD (Journalling Block Device) to user space might help with any of this.
