Application checkpoint/restart

Registered by Serge Hallyn on 2010-10-14

Application checkpoint/restart in linux (linux-cr.org) provides the ability to checkpoint,
restart, and migrate application and system containers. This provides a very lightweight
mechanism for load-balancing in the cloud.

To use checkpoint/restart, both kernel and userspace code are needed. This blueprint is
for the creation and maintenance of a PPA with the packages needed to let users use
checkpoint/restart (as far as implemented in the upstream trees) in Natty.
