Hey Martin,
BFS can't be compiled as a module, AFAIK.  The whole kernel has to be
recompiled.  I was thinking that people could install it from a ppa,
and see if they get better performance.  Compiling the kernel isn't an
option since it would take so darn long.

I can go over what I know about the commands that I used to package
the kernel.  Those that haven't done any packaging, but want to, will
find that interesting.  For the specific kernel stuff, I don't really
know much about what I was doing.
