I tested AFFS on a floppy (only writing a couple of small files) and
that worked fine. Didn't test it with a harddisk yet.

Don't the device drivers which maintain major/minor numbers (character
and block devices) need to be modified for that? I don't think the m68k
specific drivers have been converted yet, so I guess that won't work too
well... (as an example, drivers/block/z2ram.c doesn't seem to know about
devfs at all).

I can volunteer to convert them if you like... any ramdisk image I can
test them with? In the m68k department I have access to an Amiga and to
an MVME147 crate.

Kind regards,
