08/23/06: The relay-apps examples have now been completely converted to creating their files in debugfs using the new 'relay' API.
02/19/06: As of 2.6.17, the fs part of relayfs has been removed and the rest of relayfs has been moved into kernel/relay.c. The functionality remains the same, the only difference being that the files representing the channel buffers will now live in a different filesystem.
