Coda File System

Files larger than venus cache?

It seems that venus and/or the Linux kernel-venus interface can't deal
with files bigger than its cache, returning an ENOSPC (or so I presume
from the error message) on an attempt to open one.

I guess this means that the cache works on a per-file basis rather
than a per-page basis, and gives up if a file is bigger than can fit
in the cache.  Is this widely considered a bug or a feature?

(server/client v. 5.2.4, Linux kernel 2.2.10, venus/kernel module
