Not sure what you have in mind exactly, but there are related
- the crypto modules in the international linux kernel
- Erik Zadok's FIST (http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~ezk/research/fist/)
- the Transparent Cryptographic File System (http://www.tcfs.it/)
- Stefan Ludwig's Fairly Secure File System
diploma thesis, in German)
- Allan Latham's practical privacy disc (device) driver
- Matt Blaze's CFS seems to be discontinued/unsupported
Maybe you clarify what exactly you want to achieve/improve compared
to the existing projects.
