       gfsi - The Generic File System Interface

       The  Generic  File System Interface (GFSI) is the interface between the
       kernel and specific file	 system	 implementations  such	as  the	 local
       ULTRIX  file system and the Network File System.	 The Generic File Sys‐
       tem Interface has many performance improvements, along with a  complete
       reorganization  of  the	file  system code.  The GFS interface has been
       accomplished with modifications to both the mount  table,  and  to  the
       inode,  which  under the GFS interface implementation is referred to as
       the gnode.  The gnode is defined in the and

       The GFS interface allows superusers to and file systems	on  local  and
       remote  machines.  Changes to the file allow any type of mount to occur
       automatically at boot time in the files and  Other  than	 mounting  and
       unmounting  file	 systems,  users  should not see any difference in the
       local file system.

       The GFS interface requires two system calls: and The system  call  han‐
       dles generic mounted file system data.  The system call handles generic
       directory entries from any file system.
