This patch is to include support for EMC's Multi-Path File System (MPFS) into version 3.14 of Linux DiskQuota.
http://www.emc.com/products/software/celerra_mpfs/

For the most part, MPFS is exactly like NFS. The only difference is that it will service read and write (and flush, etc) I/O requests directly over Fibre Channel or iSCSI. All other requests get passed on to the NFS stack.

MPFS is currently a proprietary implementation of the IETF draft for block pNFS, proposed to be included in NFS 4.1.

A patched build of 3.14 was tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 update 2 and 3.

Thanks,
Dave Boone
