This is something that probably the kernel community can
answer a lot better. If I read the thread correctly, then
this patchset has seen some comments, not all positive. So
probably some more work would be necessary to make this
really fly well. It would be great if you could make your
needs more visible in the kernel community, maybe at some
point there is enough momentum that someone jumps on it.

With best regards,
