Or as Christoph Hellwig (who used to work for Caldera) apparently once wrote
on the LKML:
The kernel internals are so different that you'd need a big glue layer to
actually make it work and you can guess how that would be ripped
apart in a usual lkml review
I'd love a reference to the original email that this is from, Google doesn't
find it in the LKML archives. My reference for it is from:
but, unfortunately, he doesn't give a reference to it or to the email where he
says Linus found it.
