As I mentioned, my FotodioX seems to work with the Fujica lens, hence, the K&F 
adapter you mentioned still looks like the best option so far.

Some of my explorations:

There are also this m42 spacer kit that may be helpful. It looks to have very 
thin ring that might avoid the aperture mechanism:


There are some m42 T-Ring adapters from Celestron. I have this one:
Although for Sony E, it does have shorter distance as it is for a telescope and 
does not need to match the focal distance of any camera. If there is a similar 
m4/3 adapter + spacer ring might get close to proper focal distance?

It seems adapters for m4/3 are less available compared to Sony E.

Perhaps a T mount adapter, like this one:
and some m42 to T mount... just thinking. Perhaps using reversing rings in 
combination to get around the m42 aperture linkage? Or if the m42 spacers work 
with T mount?

So far the K&F you mentioned looks promising to me.
