1) should understand "older", original High Sierra ("CDROM001") type
Not yet. ( I don't have this technical information, yet. )
2) should understand Rock Ridge
Yes, we have follows function.
o Symbolic Link
o Real Name(long name)
o File Attribute
o Time stamp
o uid, gid
o POSIX device modes
I have no idea right now, we should check a REAL implementation
o Limitation of 8 level directory( ISO9660 limitation )
Rock Ridge Extension are defined with the "CL/PL/RE" for getting
rid of this limitation. But as far as I test the cdroms,I'v never
seen this definition and we can access the over 8 level without
it. (Another word, this limitation is NOT physical ISO9660's
FORMAT limitation for unix stuffs.... I believe... )
3) should be called cdfs, as there are other ISO file system soon possible
Not yet. Probably we should make another file system when the ECMA draft
is valid and do it. For doing Rock Ridge Support, I can use almost same
code. So I just use the same file system interface...
4) should have file handles implemented for use with NFS, etc
Yes. we have already this one, and I based it for this release.
5) should have name translation enabled by mount flag
Yes. we can disable the Rock Ridge Extension by follows option;
"mount -t isofs -o -norrip /dev/cd0d /cdrom"
6) should run as a user process, and not take up kernel space (cdroms
Not yet. And addition, we should try to avoid a long seek by a absolute path
with using the PATH TABLE or other method.
7) ECMA support.
Not yet. we need not only a technical spec but also ECMA format
8) Character set change by SVD ( multi SVD support )
Not yet. We should also hack the other part of system as 8 bit
clean. As far as I know, if you export the cdrom by NFS, the client
can access the 8 bit clean (ie. Solaris Japanese with EUC code )
