That would be a reasonable approach, although the tables will be
very sparse.  I shouldn't have too much trouble factoring out my
current osd_cmd_perform into separate functions with shared
routines.  If you check your patch in, I'll do this and try to help
fix up the bugs and missing pieces.

We'll still have to do something with bkio_submit_t to support
bidirectional and to support returning both data and sense.  I have
such a thing for OSD but have not tried to make all the other
devices fit it pending your perusal.

The other largish piece I'm carrying around is AHS support for
