Forcing new users to deal with historic burden is not an answer.
Use a old kernel - loose features. 

I really can't understand your problem with limiting chroot bind9 
feature to kernels with --bind mounts support. They still can run bind9 
perfectly, although less securely. 

If 2.2 kernel users want chrooted bind, they 

a) have already done it - no extra work
b) upgrade to 2.4       - sheez, that was hard...
c) do it manually       - no more work than it is now

who the hell has to do more work, if we add *support* for 
*automaticly* running bind9 in chroot jail if the kernel 
supports --bind mounts?
