Hi Dave,

Right now my patchset (v2) provides an ability to checkpoint and restart a
group of processes. The process of checkpointing and restart can be initiated
from external process (not from the process which should be checkpointed).
Also I think that all the restart job (including process forking) should be
done in kernel, as in this case we will not depend on user space and will be
more secure. This is also implemented in my patchset.
