(Please don't cross-post multiple mailing lists)
	See also: . Diff that branch and master to see what I've done so far to make the IB stuff into modules (example: ). It's not perfect, but it's a start. Something that I've wanted to push into the Isilon IB branch for some time, but it's going to take a while before that's committed back to FreeBSD proper I think.
