Look at the psxfile01 test. I think that's the one that has some specific
test cases which do not work. It could be IMFS specific or in the ioctl.
My recollection is that there no attempt to "dupe" the file state.
I do not think it is the case that extending the file descriptor array
A user application configures the number of file descriptors that they
an application and there should be plenty. This is simply missing
You might also want to look at Asynchronous IO and List IO functions. They
are in the same area and should be interesting. Probably not much more than
having a server task interact with the requests those functions make.
