Quoting Oren Laadan (orenl at cs.columbia.edu):
> These patches implement basic checkpoint-restart [CR]. This version (v5)
> supports basic tasks with simple private memory, and open files (regular
> files and directories only). The main changes include rework of memory
> restart code and response to feedback. See original announcements below.

At the kernel summit, it was asked whether at some point this CR work
could be used as the basis for a new suspend to disk implementation.
I answered that we don't plan to handle kernel threads.  In your
experience, are there any reasons why eventually we couldn't eventually
handle kernel threads?
