At the risk of sounding ungreatful for all of the hard work done on
vserver - what is the 'use case' for this feature? As I understand it
there is nothing to keep the host from playing with /dev/kmem or
otherwise tampering with the kernel, so I can't see how a feature like
this will provide any strong guarentees; unless heirarchies of contexts
(which would be extreemly cool) are planned. Or is it just intended as
a 'speed bump' / politeness feature?
Thanks for all of the hard work and the new stable version.
