Looking whether there was a bfs implementation already
I only found questions or negations, like

So, I wrote something and it works for me.
Find it in ftp://ftp.cwi.nl/pub/aeb/bfsmod.c
or in ftp://ftp.XX.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/aeb/
Note that this was written without specs of the fs
and with only one specimen of such a fs at hand.
If anybody has more information about the structure
of the superblock or inodes, I'd like to hear.
By the way, this is read-only only.
Making it read-write would be an easy exercise.
