Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


The attached patch adds RAMFS_MAGIC value to KFileSystemType so that KIO::CopyJob would not try to determine the available size on such mounts. Otherwise, the available size reported back will be zero (not correct) and KIO::CopyJob will fail with a disk full error.

This addresses bug 299156.


  kdecore/io/kfilesystemtype_p.h 3194329 
  kdecore/io/kfilesystemtype_p.cpp 23f8002 
  kio/kio/copyjob.cpp 1c23e8e 



Mount RAMDISK as outlined in the bug report and attempt to copy file before and after the patch.
