Re: [PATCH v3 00/11] Add namespace support for syslog

Since this still has not been addressed. I am going to repeat Andrews
objection again.

Isn't there a better way to get iptables information out than to use
syslog. I did not have time to follow up on that but it did appear that
someone did have a better way to get the information out.

Essentially the argument against this goes. The kernel logging facility
is really not a particularly good tool to be using for anything other
than kernel debugging information, and there appear to be no substantial
uses for a separate syslog that should not be done in other ways.

That design objection must be addressed before merging this code can be
given serious consideration.
