There isn't much documentation because there really isn't much you have
to do to enable it; a compile will pick up the right bits.  But when I
said it wasn't ready for prime time, I really meant it.  Specifically:

- The file server doesn't quite work yet (I'm working on that now).
- I haven't started writing the bits that make cache manager work
  (my plan was to start testing it with a userspace client).

So unless you're ready to start developing the code, it's not going to
be useful.  Hopefully that will change in the not-too-distant future.
