I thought of exactly the same thing (except I was not sure where to
add this)since I assume that the scheduler which I write should be

it?) calls in the nata code - is this OK?

Sure thing. I think eventually all disk drivers which have latency due to seeks would use this API.

   This would allow you to test your scheduler with a vkernel by also having
   the VKD driver call it (/usr/src/sys/dev/virtual/disk).

Im not sure of what I understand about the vkernel. Is this a common feature in BSD systems or only the DragonflyBSD? Could I have more information (or hyperlinks) to this and how it is important or can help me in testing my scheduler, as you mention above.

This is D-d-d-dragonFly exlusive(-ive-ive-ive)! Have a look at vkernel(7).
