Dear guix maintainers,
Please find attached a patch to add a package for the cachefilesddaemon, mostly used for read caching of NFS data. I've put in intolinux.scm as it's tightly coupled to the fscache linux module and isbeing developed on git.kernel.org.
There's a lint warning for Software Heritage; however i've followed theconvention of using snapshot tarballs from kernel.org (we could alsodirectly go through git, but this seems less common).
A service will follow as soon as I understand how to correctly writeone.
Kind regards,Jean-Baptiste
