the "redirfs-based on-access scanner" as you called it, is avflt,
anti-virus filter for the redirfs framework. The redirfs is a general
framework allowing filters to interact with file system calls and avflt
is using this framework to provide interface for on-access scanning.
To answer your question: yes dazuko and redirfs+avflt are different
We are not dropping support for dazuko. It will be supported in the
upcoming AVG 8.5 for Linux/FreeBSD, but we will recommend to use
redirfs+avfl solution for linux kernels >= 2.6.25. Dazuko solution
should be used for linux kernel < 2.6.25 and of course for FreeBSD
since here the dazuko is, as far as I know, the only solution.

AVG will not support dazukofs for know.
