Let's start a discussion if /dev/kmem is worth keeping around and

I'll happily do this for the next merge window, but would really want

Thanks, let's wait if someone speaks up. I'll add any details that come up to patch #1 and resend before the next merge window, properly compile-testing on other archs.
