    Neal,
    
      The two projects are aware of each other, but there is no other 
    relation between the two.
      Someday we may consider ceasing development of our own kernel module 
    and instead port BLCR's userspace to use its kernel-side support.  Or if 
    the functionality aligns closely but not perfectly, BLCR may have a 
    much-reduced kernel module, leveraging the mainline kernel support.  
    However, no such decisions have been made yet.  Such a decision would 
    likely involve ending further BLCR development/support for older kernels 
    lacking the c/r functionality (due to finite human resources), and 
    therefore would not be taken lightly.
