tfsd - TFS daemon
tfsd is the daemon for the Translucent File Service (TFS). This daemon
is started by inetd(8C) whenever a TFS request is made.
tfsd looks up a file by looking in the frontmost directory (see
tfs(4S)). If the file is not found in this directory, tfsd follows the
searchlink from the frontmost directory to the directory immediately
behind it. tfsd continues to search for the file until one of the fol-
lowing conditions is met:
o The file is found in a directory.
o There are no more searchlinks to follow.
o A whiteout entry for the file is found.
The searchlinks and whiteout entries are specified in .tfs_info files.
.tfs_info holds searchlink and whiteout entries
