    I thought that kvm tool was a userspace application. The only thing that would be suitable for integrating with the kernel would be the (small) kmod. Pulling userspace applications into the kernel is insane. Its like... why isn't apache part of the kernel... DUH, because its not GPL huh huh.

    If you do not like Linus decisions you are always free to fork.

    And that's why I actually like Linus. He always have the balls the make slightly unpopular decisions and those almost always are correct.

    Too there's no Linus gatekeeper on the distro side of things :P

    Exactly this, as the KVMtool app is a pretty big chunk of code and Linus doesn't want to bloat his tree unnecessarily

    Maybe just the ones hes interested in? Since this is his blog and all...


    Edit: ooh... you're saying hes trying to make Linus look bad because of the nvidia thing? Sneaky...

    Linus Torvalds has reaffirmed that at this point he doesn't intend to pull KVMTool into the mainline Linux kernel...
