I know the feeling. I get sudden urges to rewrite the whole patch set,
but I'm working on getting past them too. :)

As long as we have two patch sets, *nobody* is going to get their
patches in, that's virtually guaranteed. Just look at the poor I/O

The OpenVZ users are almost certainly the most important container and
c/r users out there today. Meeting their needs with whatever we come up
with should be a top priority and I know I'm counting on you to help us
do that.

But, I'm having a really hard time culling the OpenVZ user needs from
your patch set. If we really need to rewrite 85% of Oren's stuff to
meet the OpenVZ needs, then by all means let's do it. I'm even willing
to help you. But, I honestly don't know what you need.

Can we talk about specifics?
