I'm very close.  Right now, I'm working out some race conditions and
locking issues in the kernel module that usually cause problems during
stress testing.

Well, testing it and letting me know what does and doesn't work would
definitely be helpful.  Right now, the included testsuite runs fine
for me on vanilla kernels, but deadlocks on xen kernels.  I've heard
the opposite from someone else, so feedback on varied hardware and
configurations would good :)
