gjournal alpha released

gjournal is one of the Google Summer of Code projects that is FreeBSD related. It provides data journalling service that will be useful for frequent randomized area writing, just like write clustering.

Today, the first public alpha version has been released.

Please note that this is not intentional to replace SoftUpdates nor a real journalling file system, as the metadata consistency protection is different than just do data writing journalling. However, this indicates a good way of providing better performance for file systems.

Congratulations to Ivan Voras!
