Re: [PATCH 1/67] aufs document

Hello Dave,
Thank you for your comments.

About diffstat, actually I send it but the subject was not 0/67.
Please read the thread whose subject is
"[RFC n/2] AUFS: merging/stacking several filesystems"
The last message in the thread which I sent just before the patch series
has diffstat.
Do you want me to re-send it after changing the subject line?

About the number of patches, I have to agree it is large. I chose the
way to make a patch per a new file, and in case of modifying the
existing multiple files I made a single patch. I guess the latter is the
case you wrote "can be folded."

About the description, simple one for the new files because they are
brand new... I wrote a little more in case of modifying the existing
files (see the last patch). Of course a more detail description will be
necessary in future modification.
If you think the functionality is obscure, please read the aufs
documents included in the patch set (the first patches).
