A GNOME Kernel wishlist

GNOME has long had relationships with Linux kernel development, in that we would have some developers do our bidding, helping us solve hard problems. Features like inotify, memfd and kdbus were all originally driven by the desktop.

I've posted a wishlist of kernel features we'd like to see implemented on the GNOME Wiki, and referenced it on the kernel mailing-list.

I hope it sparks healthy discussions about alternative (and possibly existing) features, allowing us to make instant progress.
