Subject: [PATCH 2/3] fs/: Move eCryptfs & Unionfs config options into a sub-menu
Date: Mon, 12 Feb 2007 13:30:51 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <11713050533314-git-send-email-jsipek@cs.sunysb.edu> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <11713050521708-git-send-email-jsipek@cs.sunysb.edu>

Using The Misc filesystems sub-menu for layered/stackable filesystems only
makes it harder for users to find eCryptfs/Unionfs.

Additionally, the menu can be easily turned into a menuconfig, which could
be used to turn on any VFS/VM functionality required by layered filesystems
(there is none at the moment).
