OK, proprietary was the wrong word - the point remains that you appear to
have an acute case of "not made here" syndrome. If the shared journalling
code isn't good enough for you to use, fix it - don't harp on about how
your own RFS-only component is better than the shared one. You are not
supposed to be fighting against ext3: try to work together and share code,
instead of crowing about your code being faster in your benchmarks.
