If I remember correctly the biggest obstacle to coLinux using more
modern kernel was a change in how the Memory was dealt with. Around the
version that coLinux got stuck at there was a change to NUMA memory
access which made Linux better for larger memory configurations, but
created enough difference that it was problematic to bring coLinux
patches in line with the kernel AND still map between the coLinux driver
and Windows Memory...
It's been a really long time so my memory could be off...
