You are so full of shit it's not even funny.

I am *not* the only person working on the project, far from it. I'm not
trying to make things easy for me, I'm trying to build on the strenghts
of tools/kvm.

The main argument for merging into the main kernel repository has always been
that (we think) it improves the kernel because significant amount of
development is directly linked to kernel code (think KVM ARM port here, for
example). The secondary argument has been to make it easy for kernel developers
to work on both userspace and kernel in tandem (like has happened with vhost
drivers). In short: it speeds up development of Linux virtualization code.

It's not as if there's anything new here so I didn't think it was
necessary to rehash the old arguments. I know you don't have a
compelling reason to pull and that's fine. Just don't come up with these
lame excuses that have nothing to do with reality.
