Please, as Peter and Boris asked you already, quote a concrete, specific

'Specific event X occurs, kernel wants/needs to do Y. This cannot be done

Your generic arguments look wrong (to the extent they are specified) and it
makes it much easier and faster to address your points if you dont blur them
by vagaries.
