Some results from LinuxKongress

I had a great time both attending the talks on Linux Kongress 2010 in Nuremberg as well as giving my presentation on rsyslog performance enhancements. Even more, the social events helped driving things forward. Among others, I met with Lennart Poettering, who currently works on systemd. He had a couple of good suggestions for rsyslog and I hope to implement at least some of them. On the list for the next v5-devel release are definitely improvements for imuxsock, like the ability to obtain the process id of that process that actually emitted the log message (via SCM_Credentials). Once this is known, we can do a couple of "interesting things" with it.
