[REPOST][REPOST][REPOST] Killing processes in D state

hi all

this discussion has been up a few times, but I want it again. I _REALLY_ want
to be able to kill processes in D state. I am aware of that this is not good,
but compared to other parts of the linux kernel, there's quite a lot suicidal
stuff there already, so why not. There is, for instance, in 2.5, the
possibility to forcably remove loaded modules - FAR worse than merely killing
a userspace process in D state.

So please, dear kernel people, Free Thy Users From Those Terrible Unreasonable
