I'm going to respond only to this part:

That depends mainly on the licenses, from my point of view.
I haven't looked into the sources, but from what other systems
 - libaal: GPL2
 - reiser4progs: GPL2
 and I think the reiser4 patches were GPL2 too?

The other question is, will someone maintain this linux-libre package
variation? Are there people who would update it? We don't assign people
to packages, but knowing that there is at least one person caring for
it would help.
