[FileSystem][DSAOW] Week 35 – DS and Algo of the week & also mmap.

Data structure of the week : Self organising linked lists.
Algorithms of the week : Self organising linked lists.

I have been seeing a video lecture on filesystems and it has mentions to
mmap.
I had a very wrong idea of memory mapped files and it was corrected in the
lecture.
I have also checked these other excellent articles on mmap.
