Whoa, my idea exactly :-)

Well ... would you like my current zs driver so you can make sure it's
pmax-friendly?  If you're willing to help out with the keyboard and mouse
channel drivers, that would be even better.  I don't have serial console
support in it (yet).

If we could make a /sys/dev/tc/zs.c, that would be really great.
