    This is essentially the path Lustre is taking. Although it seems you
    don't want to have a "full" file system on the disk since you lose to
    much flexibility, instead you want the ability to allocate by handle
    giving hints about locality and use.

    People have also tried full file system offload - intel for example
    prototyped an I2O file system class, and adaptec clearly were trying
    this out on aacraid development from looking at the public headers.
