Good and necessary changes.  Minor things:

  "Move some functions under #ifdef __KERNEL__"

  - Some of these moves seem to be to avoid "function not used" warnings.
    It would be better just to disable thR warning  right now.  We are not
    interested in which functions are unused at this stage of kernel

  "Wrap/rename buffer stuff to get closer to kernel"
  - buffer_head is a structure name I have always disliked because of
    being inconsistent with "struct page" and "struct inode" etc, and it
    is needlessly verbose.  Instead lets do #define buffer_head buffer in
