2.7 "thoughts"
Thanks to Gabor, Stuart, Stephan and others
Don't hesitate to send me more or comment.


* slab allocation quota
* ntfs full support
* kernel web server (Interfaced to Roman config tool)
* ipc to sysfs
* complete user quota centralization
* Add _responsibilities_ for virtual process tree and possible
relation in oops cases
* Does the whole proc vm stuff root/box relevant ?I don't think
so....Hence, those proc entries deserve security relevant attributes
* Devices should be limited as well against bad usage(floppy defect),
viral activity(netcard rush)...
* Improve kobject model for security, quota rendering
* bind mount support for all general mount options (nodev,ro,noexec etc)
with SECURE implementation with any (maybe even future) filesystems?
* union mount (possible with option to declare on what fs a new file
should be created: on fixed ones, random algorithm, on fs with the
largest free space available etc ...)
* guaranteed i/o bandwidth allocation?
* netfilter's ability to do tricks which OpenBSD can do now with its
packet filter
* ENBD support in official kernel with enterprise-class 'through the
network' volume management
* Standard kernel output (Minimum, Full options ...)
* Virtual machine support
* /proc interface alternative to modutils/module-init-tools.
That is, to have a directory of virtual nodes in /proc
to provide the functionality of insmod, rmmod, lsmod &
modprobe would be great -- especially from the viewpoint
of recue disk images, etc.
* Software RAID 0+1 perhaps?
A lot of hardware RAID cards support it, why not the
kernel? By RAID 0+1 I mean mirror-RAIDing two (or more)
stripe-RAID arrays. (Or can this be done already?)
* Transparent Software-RAID for IDE RAID cards...
This could be done by using the Software RAID
functionality of the kernel, but making the RAID
interface transparent, so you only see a /dev/md?
device, rather than multiple /dev/?da* entries.
* hotplug RAM
