    You make it sound like it's just some minor technical hurdle
    that needs to be addressed. But from all analysis of these issues
    I've seen so far it's extremly hard and all possible solutions
    have serious issues. So before doing some baby steps there
    should be at least some general idea how this thing is supposed
    to work in the end.

    That's the easy stuff. The hard parts are all the kernel objects
    that you cannot move.
