List of HDF5 VFL Functions

The following functions support the HDF5 virtual file layer (VFL), enabling 
the creation of customized I/O drivers.  

At this time, the H5FD functions are documented only in the HDF5 Virtual 
File Layer design document and in the source code.  H5Pset_driver and 
H5Pget_driver_info are documented in the HDF5 Reference Manual.

                const void *driver_info)
