This looks very interesting!
I think there are some things that would need to be clarified (possibly they
are in the code, but from a brief review I couldn't find that).

When it comes to allocating memory, is the idea that the Erlang program will
call malloc and free?
Filling buffers would be done by calling memcpy from a binary term?
How about returned buffers, how to convert them to Erlang binaries?

best regards,
