[NTFS] Port NTFS file system to Haiku FS API

Reported by: diver Owned by: axeld

Also ntfs-3g should be updated to the latest version as it contains lots of stablity and security fixes. I would even vote to move it to the Alpha1 as ability to mount ntfs partitions will surely be useful to new users.

The only problem with that idea is that we can't include it in a default distribution as it's based on GPL licensed code. Ergo you'd still have to build it yourself by enabling GPL add-ons in the build system configuration if you wanted it, but we definitely can't include it out of the box.

But how about bash and other GPL stuff in /boot/beos/bin folder?

I have partially made code on the working computer. Soon I will commit it.

Replying to diver:

bash is a little bit different since it links to libroot, which is ok since that lib is LGPL'd anyways (since it draws its heritage from glibc). The ntfs add-on links to the kernel directly, so it's a bit more problematic there.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

NTFS has been ported to the new FS API some time ago already. Ingo fixed it to be usable in hrev29964. Note that it is not part of the default image.
