I am working on rump drivers for disk currently, (slowly in my spare time).
Rump is a userspace unikernel framework based on NetBSD's kernel.

rumpdisk will eventually replace the in-kernel gnumach driver
as a userspace disk driver.  It should fix the disk issues
we're seeing on real hardware as we won't have to maintain
a set of our own home-baked drivers based on an old linux 2.6 tree.

The idea is to enable peripheral drivers to be maintained externally
to the hurd project, and just compile them in as translators.
Rump framework allows this quite easily without having to write a "dummy" 
that part is already done. I believe that is why it was chosen.
It should work for other peripherals too, like usb, net, sound, and
even filesystem support.
