Subject: Re: moving affs + RDB partition support to staging?

Anything done to RDBs for Linux must remain 100.000% compatible with existing 
Amiga equipment. Otherwise, what's the point of bothering to use RDBs?

Note, as an experiment I had a CrossDOS partition on a hard disk briefly. So 
some amazing nonsense is possible. I concluded that for me it was not something 
I wanted to do. Alternative techniques worked well enough.

That brings to the fore an interesting question. Why bother with RDBs over 2TB 
unless you want a disk with one single partition? This Win10 monster I am using 
has a modest BIOS driver partition for the OS and a giant data partition. That 
smaller partition would easily work with any RDB/Filesystem combination since 
2.0. So there are some good workarounds that are probably "safer" and at least 
as flexible as RDBs, one Linux has used for a very long time, too.

With that it is easy in concept to put together a dual boot system with all the 
disks and partitions readable if you play the proper games at the filesystem 
level and keep individual partitions small. The filesystem would have to take on 
some of the attributes of a device driver, though. A 281 TB disk made up of 2 TB 
partitions should be possible to create if you think it through. (Note that with 
RDBs the CHS disk description is purely an abstraction that has no relationship 
to anything inside the disk. The same tricks could exist at the filesystem level.)

As for existing tools screwing up, do you think that is an excuse to perpetuate 
the failure?

If we are speaking Linux for m68k, what does it do when confronted with which is 
described with a size larger than 32 bits? Before it had everything inside it 
that refers to positions within a file by byte index with an __int64 type of 
storage did it throw up it's hands, corrupt the disk, or what? If the m68k Linux 
is a failure perhaps it doesn't matter what you do for Linuxoids. (I'll stick 
with the x64 version in that case. And I never go back to earlier versions for 
games since I consider a good compiler is the best game around. It's better than 
a blank piece of paper for possibilities.)

As I have said, for the RDB parser fix the famndool thing. Do fix it right in 
such a manner that if somebody compiles it against a version with no 64 bit 
device code it will throw a proper overflow error and protect the user. Users 
are dumb. We like to think of ourselves as smart. Let's try to be smart about 
this where we can so fingers can't point back at us rather than the fool that 
made some other error.

And do remember, I am merely (and vociferously) advising rather than dictating. 
You don't need my approval to proceed. I may want my name noted as an early 
contributor only. Meanwhile I spit out ideas as they come to me. One or more of 
them might be good. And offering alternatives is better than simply saying "No" 
most of the time.

If people are using RDBs for TB level disks I doubt they can remember which is 
the left shoe when they are getting dressed in the morning before going out in 
the yard to beat some dead horses. Or else maybe they just want to see how far 
they can flog the m68k architecture as a mental challenge. In that case, taking 
it too seriously could hurt. Note that I am mostly ignoring m68k Linux. People 
using that are hard core. People using x86/x64 Linux aren't such hard core 
folks. And I bet most of them want to read the disks so they can copy stuff to 
Amiga Forever or WinUAE running on other architectures. So TB is not likely to 
be an issue for them, either.
