    For me (and others wanting to try the latest and greatest features
about the containers) it would be a very good idea to either provide a
clean patch for the proposed features. And even maybe someone could
provide a branch of the latest stable kernel with these patches ontop.
(I could maintain such a branch, as I frequently compile the stable
kernel myself from Linus's tree.)

    So if you can provide these patches I would like to thank you in advance. :)
