I'm not expert but I have try to review this series best I can and have
not found any major mistakes which prevents merging. Yeah there are
couple bugs but because this is not going to replace NTFS driver just
yet then IMO it is best that merge will happend sooner so development
fot others get easier. I will also try to review future patches (from
Paragon and others), test patches and make contribution at my own for this
driver. So please use
