Like any piece of code more review and more testing would be great.
(Your earlier review was particularly useful!). But it's not clear that
waiting for longer will achieve either.

Look at kvm's experience for the reverse case: it went in, then got
rewritten.

As for the code in Documentation, my initial attempts tried to get
around the need for a userspace part by putting everything in the kernel
module. It meant you could launch a guest by writing a string
to /dev/lguest (no real ABI burden there), but it's a worse solution
than some user code in the kernel tree 8(

Cheers,
Rusty.
