I'd call that hibernate_io_ops FWIW.

free_space() ?

I agree with Pavel that these names are not exactly self-documenting.

Would it make sense to use names like reader_start(), reader_finish() and
similarly for "writer"?

Also one might think of adding a data pointer to this structure that will
be passed to the callbacks. This way it would be easier to think of our
storage spaces as objects, each with a set of methods and a pointer to
the data they operate on.
