Would linux accept those patches?



It doesn't have to -- you can just have a loadable kernel module that takes over the network stack.

Such a thing would be very difficult to maintain given that linux refuses to provide a stable API.

Agreed, but it's possible (in theory, much like writing your own network stack).

-----


Linux developers are very opposed to having their lovingly crafted network stack replaced with something crappy and/or proprietary (see TOE).
