Completely agree with Suparna, the sync of kernel with tools is must. Many of the enterprise class kernels (aix, solaris, irix) kept the provision for tools by design and not as addon, thats why maintainability is so easy.
In case of linux "Reliable" first crash analysis support would definately improve the quality the kernel.
One of my expectations of summit was a road map for future apart from status. Any idea from from anybody would be useful. I still believe that "kernel stress testing" is big challenge. Creation of uncertain scenario and creating extreme load conditions are far away from LTP or any similar tools which i have seen yet.
