Virtual file system - part two

Author: JT Smith

From FreeOS.com: "An inode contains the management information for a particular file. The information
contained includes owner id, size of file, access time, access rights, and the
allocation of data to blocks on the physical media. The inode already contains a
few block numbers to ensure efficient access to small files. Access to larger files is
provided via indirect blocks that contain block numbers."
