Hi Dillon Hasso and all,

Thank you for the interest about my post.

In fact, the patch needs to build with kqemu package and here is a procedure:

1. get kqemu
2. extract and put my 2 files into kqemu-1.4.0pre1
3. go common directory and make obj file first
 $ cd common; gmake; cd ..
4. build kernel module
 $ make -f Makefile.dragonfly

I also agree we have to have a code review and/or security audit by
you or any others. Please let me  know if you have any concerns or

thank you,
