Hi Andrew,

Oren sent v20 of the checkpoint/restart patchset out two weeks ago.
We've addressed some feedback from linux-fsdevel and added network and
pid namespace support.  So we could resend again now.  However we also
have a bigger patchset in the works which is feature-neutral, but moves
all the code out of linux-2.6/checkpoint/ and next to the code it
affects.  I ancitipate #ifdef clashes though, so we'll
need to do quite a bit of various-config-and-arch testing of the new
code layout.  If you're at a good point to pull it, we can resend the
code as is now so as to get some wider testing exposure. Or, if you prefer,
we can wait until after the code move in case that would be seen as more
amenable to meaningful review.

We don't want to patch-bomb needlessly so thought we'd ask first :)

thanks,
