[20070217] Article: Using the BSD-Unix nullfs layer, part 1
From the systhread.net article: ``The nullfs filesystem is a passthrough filesystem. When nullfs is mounted it - literally copies the filesystem transaction. If a file is deleted, nullfs simply transmits the information down to the lower filesystem. Conversely, if a file is created, it does the same and tacks on all of the data needed for the filesystem underneath. Why is that a good thing? Where did nullfs come from and why?. What else, if anything, is it good for? The series focuses on where nullfs comes from, how it can be leveraged, a code walk and a skeloten implementation.''
