Tim created a block driver that is separate from this implementation. We
 needed the virtio.c for N/W driver support and later we would have 
tried to clean all the things. I think if you load the block driver module only then it should work. We were mostly trying to get evevery thing up and then do the cleaning work. I hope Tim would better explain this if you still have some doubts.

    I think its good but still wait for some replies, I
      just had a fast go.
      Also, according my knowledge Tim completed the block driver and
      had some testing results also.
    When looking at the code, I had the impression that some functions
    where wrote twice (once in blk.c and once in virtio.c). Was it on
    purpose ?

                  thank you for your answer, I'm writing my application
                  with the
                  information provided in some other mail sent by Justin
                  Then will I have to send it on this mailing list in
                  advance ?
                You can wait until March 28th when student application
                time opens with
                Google, and fill it out at the Google site.  It'll be
                the same set of
                questions there.
