Indeed those are the wrappers we are discussing. The question at hand is
whether we wish to continue supporting the creation of the libc shared
library with PVFS support built in, or if we are ready to drop this in
favor of the kernel module for general application support.
We would continue to keep the pvfs_xxx() calls for use in user-space by
applications and libraries.
