Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 for-6.2 0/6] push backup with fleecing
Date: Wed, 4 Aug 2021 13:03:12 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <52b34ad4-cce6-9cfe-b785-5a83096b6ca0@virtuozzo.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210721140424.163701-1-vsementsov@virtuozzo.com>

Consider that as RFC.

I'm preparing an alternative and more efficient fleecing scheme, based on special block driver, not on backing link.

So, this will be rebased, and probably some permission-related difficulties may be avoided.
