The 2.6.36 kernel is about to be released. I don't plan on integrating
the already publicly available DazukoFS patches into a new version
until then. At that point I would also fix any new issues with 2.6.36.

2.6.36 is actually a very interesting kernel release because it will
include (for the first time) the fanotify interface. Although the
implementation is quite different, fanotify could be used as a
replacement for DazukoFS. And since it is now mainline Linux, one must
ask if DazukoFS should continue to exist.

I plan on writing test applications using fanotify to demonstrate that
fanotify can be a replacement for DazukoFS. If the applications indeed
show this (which I assume they will), then I will officially orphan
(or pass on maintenance of) DazukoFS (after fixing 2.6.36 issues).
