introducing what i'm calling network accessed disks, which are roughly
similar to network block devices. it's really a kernel/userland gateway
for disk i/o, with a userland component fetching data over the network.
for this reason, the interface is called "ud" instead of "nad".
the code works, but it's rough.
1. no glue included. you're on your own patching conf.c and MAKEDEV.
2. no documentation.
3. it's "student code" not production code.
i'm dumping a tarball, as is, at http://www.zeitbombe.org/nad.tgz. no
warranty, no guarantee, no support.
we want to stop reading magazines
stop watching tv
stop caring about hollywood
but we're addicted to the things we hate
