I can see what I can do.

I've cleaned up the code a bit, especially where it would redefine
kernel functions. [1] Should I submit the end result, one file per
patch, or begin with the original code and submit patches on top of

Also, the driver would define it's own data types like
typedef unsigned int UINT32;

I've replaced that with u32, etc as the naming implied the bit size
would matter. (And it probably does for the on-disk file system
structures, but they are used for everything) Is there any disadvantage
to this over using the standard C types?

I've tried reaching them by their last public e-mail addresses I could
find, but they would either bounce or I got no reply.
