Doing recovery actions in userspace is too flaky. Daemon can get killed
at any point in time and there are error types where you want to do
recovery *before* you return to userspace.
Yes, we do have different error reporting facilities but I still think
that concentrating all the error information needed in order to do
proper recovery action is the better approach here. And make that part
of the kernel so that it is robust. Userspace can still configure it and
