[linux-lvm] [maybe off-topic] which software project for a aix disk partition scanner for linux

After having looked after a AIX LVM logical volume discovery tool and a
AIX JFS file system driver for linux, I have written both myself (for
read-only access only). I plan to submit the jfs driver (which I currently
have called jfsv3) to lkml, but the partition scanner does not fit well
in block/partitions, which supports only contiguous partitions. Similarly
kpartx (part of multipath-tools) does seem to have the same limitations.

I am currently able to produce a table for input of dmsetup, but dmsetup
is a generic tool that does not support any particular partition layout.

I would like to get some suggestions of existing software projects where
my code would fit well.

Thanks in advance
