Kernel state?  It most definitely doesn't belong there indeed.  Containers are
managed by physmem, not by the kernel.  They are useful for other cases and
need to be implemented anyway.  Using them in this case should not be very
complex, but obviously not supporting names longer than some arbitrary limit
is less complex.
