29// The DEVFS File System contains inodes associated to all chdev descriptors availables
30// in the target architecture.  It is a three levels tree structure:
31// - The "dev" directory inode is stored in cluster_0. It is the root of the devfs
32//   file system. The parent inode is the "/" global 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 chdev descriptors.
35//   The parent inode and dentry are stored in cluster_0.
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 descriptors.
38//   The parent inode and dentry are stored in cluster_0.
39//
40// The DEVFS File system does not require a context extension, but requires an inode
41// extension to store the pointer on the associated chdev descriptor.
