I don't think the concerns you're referring to can be solved out. Some people
just don't like the whole idea and I don't think there's any way we can improve
the patches to make them happy. The only "solution" they would be satisfied
with would simply be rejecting the feature altogether, although there are no
practically viable alternatives known to me.

OTOH I do think there are quite a few reasons to take the patchset, so I'm
going to push it to Linus as I told in one of my replies to Kevin. If Linus
decides not to pull it, so be it.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
