The kernel module should be able to handle all the IEC protocol details for you, and you should be able to write your 1541 emulation in user space. The kernel module will take care of all the timing details, leaving your program to deal with interpreting the data. If you look at the project you'll see that all the disk emulation is handled outside of the kernel.
