I have talked with Steve Best and the AlinkA people couple of
months ago to clarify the origin of JFS for Linux.  Steve said
that JFS for Linux was a direct port of OS/2 JFS which had been a
project from scratch starting in 1995---it has no relations to the
over 10 years old AIX JFS codebase.  However, this new JFS
codebase is expected to appear in IBM's AIX 5L product line as
well.
