I don't think people understand. That is simply not a "solution". That is
a PROBLEM. The thing you describe is an absolute disaster. Which is
exactly why I rant against it.

The last thing we want to have is "here, take this, and make your own
kernel module mess around it optimized for your particular crazy
scenario".

But every SINGLE post in this thread that has argued for utrace has argued
exactly this way.
