I am facing a problem when porting tmpfs. What's the story for FreeBSD
to support special type of files, like BLK, CHR, FIFO, SOCKET? I know
BLK/CHR will be
handled by devfs. How about FIFO & SOCKET? Need any special code to
handle them? Or they will be handled by VFS? Even, should tmpfs
support them?
