I think this will solve the problem nicely. Thanks for making this 
happen, Ronnie.

It all looks straightforward.. I'll probably do a test packaging early 
next week and beat on it a bit.

The only question I have isn't about the modularization, but about the 
fancy new backstore that prompted it, and how to support it. Not that I 
expect much work will be needed, but Dan, are you or some other Ceph dev 
around if an issue with bs_rbd comes up? :)
