This is a key point. One of the main drivers for this work is the
efficiency improvement for large numbers of mounts. Ian and Karel have
already provided performance measurements showing a significant benefit
compared with what we have today. If you want to propose this
alternative interface then you need to show that it can sustain similar
levels of performance, otherwise it doesn't solve the problem. So
performance numbers here would be helpful.

Also - I may have missed this earlier in the discussion, what are the
atomicity guarantees with this proposal? This is the other key point for
the API, so it would be good to see that clearly stated (i.e. how does
one use it in combination with the notifications to provide an up to
date, consistent view of the kernel's mounts)

Steve.
