I haven't been watching qemu development too closely but AFAIK (and
a quick search through the list archives says the same thing) there
haven't been any efforts in building the vmware block driver as a kernel
(block device) driver.

This would of course be a complete waste of somebody's time _except_
(arguably) for something like booting a kernel natively but mounting root
(et cetera) from a .vmdk file.

I would equally appreciate any pointer towards somebody's attempt at
doing this or an opinion on whether it is worth doing at all (although
the FUSE framework would probably make a first attempt worthwhile).
