No, it is not about that. It is semantically a no-op: N2659 is not
about a safe subset of C -- it just triggered discussions about it in
the reflector.

The point is that we think it is important to improve C for the kernel
too. We are not working on bringing Rust to the kernel "just because
we want Rust", but because we believe it has a sizable amount of
advantages that outweigh the costs.

Cheers,
Miguel
