Take your unpleasant threatening attitude somewhere else. There are a lot
of people very interested in namespaces.

And since forever the upstream approach has been "we don't care if you
shipped it first, that's *your* problem"

You've yet to demonstrate
- That your patches are a real speed up
- That dumping more crap in kernel without policy and management is a
good idea
- That the other proposals are worse than yours.

Arjan produced detailed boot graphs and boots a box very fast indeed. I
see no boot graphs, no detailed analysis here.

Instead we have obnoxious threats to Eric Biederman and an "I am going to
ram this into the kernel whatever" approach.

Neither are constructive or useful and this isn't the way the Linux
kernel project works. Yes maybe you can stuff things into Greg's tree
easily because you both work for SuSE but that isn't the right way to do
stuff for upstream.
