Wow. That's a lot of work!

It might be too early for that. DazukoFS is still a moving target. For
example, if you compare the Linux Submission patches with 3.0.0-rc3
you will already find a lot of changes. After being submitted for the
Linux kernel, I assume that many more changes will be needed.

You are certainly welcome to spend time on this. But be aware that it
may be a frustrating task until DazukoFS settles down.
