is the logger driver really needed for the userspace to run? could you point me to documentation on it?

as for ION, since there is no code available yet, it's hard to talk about it.

Userspace should fail over to dropping all logs on the floor. Not useful but it should work.

We're still getting back online after the kernel.org downtime, so I don't have a handy URL for browseable source. Before kernel.org went down the ION kernel side sources were being developed in the open in the kernel repositories at android.git.kernel.org.

Hopefully it'll all be sorted out in the near future alongside the ICS userspace source release.

this is the sort of thing I was thinking about when I was saying that things just needed to run, not implement everything.

I am thinking that the interfaces needed to just make things 'run' on a kernel.org kernel is much smaller than what people have been trying to get submitted. And then once this smaller set is in place, things can be worked on much more easily.

while I have your attention, did you see Neil Brown's proposal for a userspace wakelock-type daemon? how hard would it be to modify the Android userspace to work with his proposal? As I understand it, there's only one daemon that actually talks to the kernel, everything else in the Android userspace talks to that daemon.
