Surely Linux kernel structures are consistent between kernel versions
and the only updates are new drivers and bugfixes, thereby allowing you
to transfer state readily from one running kernel to another. I mean
kernel code is so perfectly designed from a software engineering POV
that it is surely the epitomy of clean generic interfaces, abstraction
in all the right places and efficient code, is it not? :)
