    My only initial reaction is that I absolutely hate the naming (not to say
    I love the code - just to say that I didn't even look at it, because I got
    hung up on the name).

    "cr"? It could be anything. I realize that to _you_ that is meaningful,
    but to somebody less specifically interested in checkpoint-restore 'cr'
    means 'carriage return' or just doesn't really say anything at all.

    That goes both for file naming (kernel/cr/xyzzy.c) and to a lesser degree
    for function naming too. I also don't think it makes sense to have
    something like kernel/cr/cr-x86_32.c or kernel/cr/cr-tty.c - maybe that is
    good right now, but I sure hope that the long-term goal is to have these
    things in the code that will need to change them when the code gets
    updated (ie arch/x86/kernel and drivers/char/)
