Workaround, upcoming work

Matthew Dillon has a post describing a bug in the installer (encountered by ‘Eugene’) along with a workaround.

Dillon also describes his upcoming work, which will include BUF/BIO conversion, a read() and write() buffer cache interface, and then the “grand
cache coherency management system”, also known as the most complex code yet.
