Design and Implement a Layered File System Extension Architecture

Reported by: bonefish Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc: leavengood@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


Design and implement an architecture to transparently extend the capabilities of file systems. It should make the following features possible:

  • Add BeOS attributes and query support to non-BeOS/Haiku-native FSs.
  • Add write support (using volatile storage like memory) to read-only FSs (e.g. ISO9660) or FSs residing on read-only media.
  • Add features like data encryption to any FS.

Those extensions should be pluggable in layers, i.e. it should be possible to extend a ISO9660 FS by attributes, write support, and encryption at the same time.

Yeah, he implemented the attributes and write support layers. This ticket was even only about the general architecture, which I mostly implemented in hrev24816.
