I understand it perfectly. I take the same position with kvm. I'm providing more data in the hope that you'll change you mind, not trying to flood you with email so you'll give up.

We can always create our eventfd-lookalike for kvm, but I'd rather not do that (other options include a userspace proxy through existing interfaces, it might even be better than changing eventfd if we decide performance for level-triggered interrupts is not critical).

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
