:thomas spanjaard is working on a patch.  maybe he can publish some diffs =
:to make the progress quicker?

    I took a long look at the FreeBSD code today.   It is not going to be an
    easy port, mainly due to a ton of API changes from FreeBSD<->DragonFly
    code divergence.  It isn't hard necessarily, but there will be a lot of
    grunt work.

    I am going to continue to work on the userland VFS API, but I'll get
    some of the device API changes done first so the device API stops
    being a moving target.  The device work has to run along the same
    lines as the VFS work.  Moving arguments into argument structures
    and providing an abstraction layer (which are those SYSLINK commits I
    made a few days ago) that will allow them to operate in userland over
    a communications link. 

    I'll revisit the ATA code and see how Thomas is doing after I get
    the device work done (which should be by the weekend).
