LINUX KERNEL --
The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review.

Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features.

Among the changes in this revision to KDBUS are exposing its control files and other information via a new kdbusfs file-system, KDBUS expects to be mounted to /sys/fs/kdbus, a new KDBUS domain is created for each time kdbusfs is mounted, and various other low-level changes.

More details via the patch-set series. It's not clear yet whether KDBUS will be ready for merging in the Linux 3.19 kernel or will be held off until Linux 3.20 or longer.
