Re: [dm-devel] Latest dm-userspace kernel code

I have thought about this approach before, and perhaps it makes sense,
as it will simplify the kernel module and move all of the CoW-like
behavior back out to userspace.

In order for this to perform well, we will need to use AIO, right?

I would be interested to hear feedback from others on this list about
this particular point.
