moving the thread to kernel-team at lists.ubuntu.com where it is
more appropriate ;)

The patch is interesting, but i am very concerned about it:
- - it is a 600KB patch that touches really a lot of code including very delicate parts.
- - creating a special version means introducing a lot of extra maintainers work
the simple fact that the patch apply doesn't ensure us the following prerequisite that
i would consider essentials when modifing that part of the kernel:
- - we can't provide security and it might in future clash with security fixes coming from upstream
- - the patch has not been pushed upstream afaik
- - it is maintained outside, that means if upstream goes away, we will have to drop it

I fully understand your point, but given the above points, I am not too happy
to include it in the main kernels but perhaps you are interested in working
with us to create a simpler infrastructure to create your own packages?
