My idea is to create /dev/hdX devices
This is userspace visible thing and have not much todo with kernel
that would use a common XHDI block device driver implementation driver
(parametrized) that would be an implementation of the interface to be
designed. I suppose we want to replace the buffer cache calls away
from the filesystems implementation and instead use the new interface
I'm sure you wont like todo that. The filesystems are already device
independant as they only use the buffer cache for I/O. The current
buffer cache use at the moment XHDI and as fallback BIOS.
Yes, I found out this at the end...
Just sort out these things and modify the buffer cache to use a new
