I'm a bit confused about what you're saying here. What does the 'vector'
in all these expressions mean?
In OO terminology our *_operation structures are interfaces. Each particular
instance of such a struct that is filled with function pointers is a class.
Each instance of an inode/file/dentry/superblock/... that uses these operation
vectors is an object.
What I propose (or rather demand ;-)) is that you don't duplicate this
infrastructure, and add another dispath layer below these objects but instead
re-use it for what it is done and only handle things specific to reiser4
in your own code.
Just out of curiosity, could you please specify few exact examples with
specific file/function names which duplicate the existing
infrastructure. What do they duplicate and why? How should these
functions be implemented on VFS? Ho should the the other FSes
implement/ignore them? Why are you shure they will fit VFS well? etc.
