Symlinks and hardlinks, move over, make room for reflinks!
We all know symlinks and hardlinks. It’s very useful in Linux where you want to point a path to other directory. Such as many deployment tool have a concept of current symlink point to latest release.
But I haven’t heard of reflink till this issue: it’s a tool for doing copy-on-write on the file system. It’s only available on APFS, XFS, Btrfs though. So no good news for ext3/ext4.
