I think the correct place to start implementing this is in the framework
of the EVMS project ( It is doing
the work of a generalized block-remapping driver for Linux. They already
have working Linux LVM kernel drivers, along with MS-DOS partition code,
etc. Adding in the NT dynamic disk remapping would probably be welcome.
