The kernel people doesn't think the current monitoring API is superior. In
fact, most people think it's crap. I don't know why Linus let it in
though. It slipped in with some file lease changes that samba needed.
They do seem to think that IMON, both the API and the current
implementation, is bad though.
The truth of the matter is probably that the kernel people don't feel that
this is an important issue. I obviously disagree.
