I tested this a bit by compiling glibc on  2.4GB partition. It seems to
work quite well at first, but after a while, I got a couple of errors.
Most of them were plain freezes or Resource lost. I also had quite some
filesystem corruption when (forcibly) checking the file system. After
reverting the patch and to a smaller partition, I was able to build
glibc without problems :-/

I've completely revised core function disk_cache_block_ref and now it uses simpler approach to remapping pages to blocks. I've run compiling glibc and after 5 hours the microkernel paniced (zalloc 8192). Unfortunately, then there was long search of mysterious hurd bug until I found it in libihash. So my time in this week for testing is eaten. Would you just give a single try to my pre-RC2 snapshot[1]?
