    SubjectRe: [take26-resend1 0/8] kevent: Generic event handling mechanism.

    * [oh, everybody will hate me for saying this, but...] to me, "kevent"
    implies an internal kernel subsystem. I would rather call it "uevent"
    or anything else lacking a 'k' prefix.

    * I like the absolute timespec (and use of timespec itself)

    * more on naming: I think kevent_open would be more natural than
    kevent_init, since it opens a file descriptor.

    * why is KEVENT_MAX not equal to KEVENT_POSIX_TIMER? (perhaps answer
    this question in a comment, if it is not a mistake)

    * Kill all the CONFIG_KEVENT_xxx sub-options, or hide them under
    CONFIG_EMBEDDED. Application developers should NOT be left wondering
    whether or support for KEVENT_INODE was compiled into the kernel.
