Herbert, please re-read my email here:
where I explained my rational for a change in the interface between kernel
and userland for vserver events. The main points were extensibility beyond
the reboot function, and to not unecessarily hide the details of the call.
I thought I made a reasonable case, but did not hear back from anyone. My
fault for assuming silence equals agreement, but I would still appreciate
knowing why you think I'm on the wrong track. I'm willing to take my
medicine :-) [English expression for having to go though necessary pain]

The patch was for developers to take a look and/or play with. I certainly
don't expect people with production systems to go through the effort. My
apologies to all if that was how it was taken.
