Not yet. But, porting it should be fairly simple. Does Irix support extended
attributes? Though porting GlusterFS to Irix is not in our roadmap, we can
offer support for somebody willing to take up the task.

I would like to make a local filesystem available:

As a policy we do not support modifying the backend of GlusterFS directly.
But, generally read-only access directly to the backend is fine. Also, if
you are using GlusterFS in a non-clustered mode (NFS-like) it should work
