popular file sharing p2p applications like emule and bittorrent,
innovative application like Osiris each has its own Kademlia protocol
implementation in userspace presently. the imaginable kernel support
needed is to reduce many repeated (different or same) Kademlia
protocol implementations running in userspace to a consolidated one at
kernel level, so that the Kademlia protocol as a p2p network
infrastructure is provided in kernel and any p2p application could
just use the interface provided by kernel, thus a great p2p network is
easily created, and  applications on that network infrastructure could
grow rapidly.
