Interesting. I'll try to give it a careful review in the next couple
of days.

I've added Jay Lan <jlan@xxxxxxx> to the cc list. I encourage you to
include him on your cc list in the future - thanks. He has expertise
in some of SGI's earlier container-like efforts.

thanks ;

Question (perhaps already answered in your code - I haven't looked
yet): can loadable kernel modules register containers? I'd like to
see at least GPL modules be able to register containers, but I
appreciate that this could be a controversial issue. Technically, I am
guessing that some EXPORT_GPL_SYMPOL declarations on the necessary
container registration routines would provide GPL modules with this

Guess I should read the code ...

I won't rest till it's the best ...
