Let me first say that I really love where this is going and would love
to see more of this work.

Will this work with older kernels as well? Meaning: Can I compile
today's user land programs with a new glibc and Kernel 3.10? My reading
of the patch assumes it does but I would like to hear that you tested it.

The patch itself looks fine, thanks,
