Re: [RFC] switch default kernel to 7.x based

I would like to switch primary kernel to 7.0 (or even to RELENG_7 branch).
It basically means update of freebsd-libs, freebsd-utils and namely kfreebsd-kernel-headers.

It should allow us to create "lenny snapshot" with kernel from FreeBSD 7.1.

Do you have any trouble with 7.0 kernel ?
Do you have any objections, comments ?

Switch to 7.x based kernels also have one big advantage, there would be available real-time signals. It would be possible to runtime detect this
and select rt/non-rt implementation of linuxthreads in glibc dynamically.
With the rt one "ext/threads/shared/t/stress" in perl testsuite passes ...
