Subject: Re: Suggestion for a new system call: convert file handle to a cookie for transfering file handles between processes.

Message-ID: <> (raw)

It might be posible to implement in user space. I have not fully studied
it to see if there are significant problems.

I believe that innovation is a public good that should be actively
promoted. Otherwise technology would never advance.

The complication added to the kernel is minimal because the primitive is
simple. That is actually the most important reason why I like it.

There are barriers to adopting, such as portability. But if the
primitive is included in standard Linux and is found useful by
application developers, other Unixes will follow.
