:I absolutely agree.  We need proper kernel threading support though.  I 
:hope to work on this in the next time, but I always appreciate support. 
:  Somebody like kernel hacking?

    I can't help with the programming but anyone who wants to take this
    on please feel free to bounce ideas and code off of me.


    At the moment I am very hard at work converting the entire BUF/BIO
    system from 32 bit block numbers to 64 bit byte offsets, following
    the plan I posted at the beginning of the year (and have made good
    progress in).  That alone is going to take several weeks to fully
    test and stabilize.  

    Once that is done I will follow up with something 'fun'...  a direct
    buffer cache interface for read() and write().

    And then, after that, finally, I will start implementing the grand
    cache coherency management system that will start the chain of work 
    that will lead to VM space sharing between physical machines, process
    migration, and other cluster-friendly things.
