    I would be very interested in a CSA implementation similar to what I have on
    IRIX. I will also plead guilty to not having downloaded the updated patches
    for either the kernel or the tools. I'm continuing to use my poor hack until
    a permanent solution gets accepted into the kernel, at which point I'll
    adopt that.

    And if it counters the impression at all, I'm not a kernel developer, I
    proposed my hack out of need as a user of the tools. I also try to stay away
    from modified kernels, so I'm running Marcelos' 2.4 stable branch with only
    the 32bit u/gid_t hack applied. That's why I haven't had any feedback on the
    -mm branch.

    In short, for my use BSD accounting is sufficient, but I'd love to see CSA in
    Linux as well. Linux hasn't moved too far into roles where it's a necessity
    (for what I'm doing, anyway), but I see CSA as something that would certainly
    help it assume those roles.
