Abstract

Container runtimes cause Linux to return to its original purpose: to serve applications interacting directly with the kernel. At the same time, the Linux kernel is traditionally difficult to change and its development process is full of myths. A new efficient in-kernel programming language called eBPF is changing this and allows everyone to extend existing kernel components or glue them together in new forms without requiring to change the kernel itself.
