29// The DEVFS File System contains inodes and dentries associated to all chdev descriptors
30// availables in the architecture. It is structured as a three levels tree structure :
31// - The "dev" directory inode is stored in cluster_IO. It is the root of the DEVFS
32//   file system. The parent inode is the "/" VFS root.
33// - There is one "internal_cxy" directory inode per cluster, that is the parent of
34//   the local children inodes associated to the local, internal chdev descriptors.
35//   The parent dentry is stored in cluster_IO.
36// - The I/O cluster contains one "external" directory inode, that is the parent of
37//   the remote children inodes associated to the remote external chdev descriptors.
38//   The parent dentry is stored in cluster_IO.
39//
40// The DEVFS file system uses the DEVFS context extension to register an extended pointer
41// on the DEVFS "dev" inode, and and another extended pointer on the "external" inode.
42//
43// The DEVFS file system uses the VFS inode extension to store the pointer
44// on the associated chdev descriptor.
