Excellent answer. I only mentioned booting into Linux in the title b/c that's what likely will be searched for, so great addition about Linux vs Linux Kernel, that needs to be more widespread knowledge.

Yeah, I knew busybox was comin'. Lets see if anything else shows up.

comment Can I achieve functionality similar to interrupts in Linux userspace?
@SF. I see, hmm I'm pretty sure I recall reading something about being notified on certain events, but it was almost certainly for kernel space

This is a tricky one, because userspace questions were supposed to be off topic here, how can we resolve this? I'm thinking modules along with the rest of everybody, would you accept that as a valid answer? More detailed of course, but along the module vein?

comment How do I get NetworkManager to keep the same IP?
@Kaz No, neither will dhcp. dhcp's purpose is to not have to assign static IP address and other options that are associated with dhcp such as boot roms dns servers gateways etc. dhcp does not restart a tcp stream, which is why when you reconnect your computer to a network your failed downloads don't automatically resume. Furthermore, you don't need to have the same IP if you properly configure dhcp and dns, unless you're running a server, which I doubt the OP is doing.

@slm show me a dhcp server's config where you can assign a static IP that is not a lease reservation, and I will gladly delete my answer.

comment How do I get NetworkManager to keep the same IP?
I've updated the comment, but I will also clarify. Static IPs being assigned from within the DHCP scope is bad practice. Period. Any Network admin worth their salt will tell you that. Using static IPs unecessarily (i.e., for misc clients, servers/printers are a different story) is also bad practice. For example, what if these are laptops, and a user just happens to take their machine somewhere else and connects to a different network? Lease Reservations are fine when needed, I'm not denying that, but statics are a different story.

You can't do that from a dhcp server, only the client. Dhcp servers will only do lease reservations. Also, The proper method is to either set a lease reservation or assign static IPs on the client, setting aside space in the subnet outside the dhcp range. static IPs should NEVER be assigned from the dhcp range.
