Can we create an official top level directory to hold all these virtual file systems that point to data structures in kernelspace?
You can mount sysfs anywhere, but that doesn't help the dozens of apps that expect /sys to be there is sysfs exists. I'm just getting itchy about the name space pollution in the root.
Perhaps we should have /kernel? Then the kernel devs can make virtual file systems all day long (as seems to be the rage now) without mucking up my root directory.
