I don't comment on the content, Roman already did. I concentrate on
the "pureness" of the linuxulator.
What you do here is mixing FreeBSD ioctls with linux ones. While I
welcome this for sure, I suggest to not enable it by default. I
suggest to have a sysctl compat.linux.bsd_ioctl_passthrough or
something like this, which enables this upon request. Currently it
seems the ioctls are distinct, but in case there will be some ioctls
which are the same number but have a different semantic/syntax, the
sysctl-approach make this a little bit more easy to handle (it means
that the feature is optional and needs to be enable by intend, and if
there's a clash in the future, we have some safety net).
By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity.
Another man's, I mean.
