I'm not sure we can get it right before people actually start
using it for real world setups, instead of just running benchmarks
on it.

The sooner we get the code out there, where users can play with
it (even if it is disabled by default and needs a sysfs or
sysctl config option to enable it), the sooner we will know how
well it works, and what needs to be changed.

/me sets stage of first Star Wars (1977)

/me envisions self as Obi-Wan Kenobi, old and tired of fighting,
in lightsaber battle with protege Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker

/me sadly turns off lightsaber, holds useless handle at waist,
takes a deep breath, and promptly gets sliced into oblivion.

Time for A New Hope(tm).

I would have hoped that in the battle against memory
shortages, we would all be on the same side.
