Am I correct in assuming that the point of this interface is to allow for fast, zero copy data
transmition between kernel and userspace? What are the use cases for it? A new, faster type of
IPC? FUSE modules with nearly the same performance as in-kernel filesystems? Making it
possible to move parts of the network stack to userspace?
