Hi Moritz,

Thankx for your suggestion.  Trivfs is really cool.  I thought that trivfs
should be used to write some sort of file system translator, however, i
was wrong.  I came to know that it is also used to register into the Hurd
nameserver, which is being handled by the filesystem itself.  Ex: your
simple password server and pfinet server.

However, i want to know why my non-trivfs code was not working and where i
was doing wrong?

P.S:- I am attaching the working code with this mail.
