No kvmtool in the mainline

Parent article: No kvmtool in the mainline

The core argument seems to be "tooling and kernel side go hand in hand" and "code reuse" is not very convincing. That would suggest that fsck.* should be included in kernel tools/ directory. After all, when adding a new feature in kernel to a filesystem, you need to do the same change to filesystem's fsck tool. It is easy to see how that would end up as a long slippery slope to merging in everything from systemd to emacs...

... when clearly the existence of the kernel-mode linux project shows that what you should be doing is running emacs in the kernel.

Shouldn't you really just implement the kernel in EMACS LISP and be done with it? ;-)
