Great, please go for it. I don't see any sense in 'locking' the project.
A couple more things occured to me this evening:
- do_sys_mknod() and one other function I added to my local kernel are
missing. I don't have the changes any more but they should be very easy to
identify and modify vfs_syscalls.c for. If you replicate them please get
the changes included in the kernel. See the existing do_foo() functions
and their syscall wrappers. It just involves shuffling arguments. Both
functions are used when maintaining device nodes under /dev/zvol.
- I remember getting the solaris module to link and load, possibly by
omitting some source files. Or they could all compile; it was a couple of
months ago so I don't remember now. Anyway, it paniced with a trap when
initializing Solaris' callb or taskq subsystems and I didn't look into it
further. So that is probably the first of many panics that will need
