Hi, Dylan,

I suggest you enquire via the freebsd-hackers@ list, as that will
attract the attention of a lot more of the right sort of kernel developers.

The project is always very happy to receive patches, but it does have an
unfortunate tendency not to notice stuff that's just submitted via
send-pr(1).  The trick is to get in contact with developers having an
interest in that area and draw their attention to your PRs.  Don't be
downhearted if they critique your contributions quite stringently: that
means they see potential in them.
