    The dax mount option for EXT4 and XFS now support enabling it "always", "never", or "inode" for the more selective handling.
    Typos: "support" should be "supports" as well as there should be an "as" after "it"

    The dax mount option for EXT4 and XFS now supports enabling it as "Jadzia", "Ezri", or "Curzon" for the more selective handling.
    I think we all want the Jadzia Dax mount option.

      This is only for Optane NVDIMM right? The low capacity like 32GB or something? Not the 480GB 900p and 905p models?

        Dax, the dude from Attack of the Clones? Thanks for the reminder it exists. Whoever is doing it, Disney is gonna sue the hell out of them though.

            It's amazing how time goes by, I have now moved to Btrfs for my system for almost three years, even if I have XFS storage disk.

              With Apache Pass 512GB per DIMM module is available (at a price point that only a few targeted customers are really interested, but those that are interested are *very* interested).
