Kernel Extensions and Device Support Programming Concepts
The virtual file system is an abstraction of a physical file system implementation. It provides a consistent interface to multiple file systems, both local and remote. This consistent interface allows the user to view the directory tree on the running system as a single entity even when the tree is made up of a number of diverse file system types. The interface also allows the logical file system code in the kernel to operate without regard to the type of file system being accessed. For more information on the logical file system. read more.
