I have not chimed in on this yet, but the patches include stuff to make
docker run better on a
systemd based system.  Going purely upstream eliminates us from
experimenting and testing
some of our ideas.

Current patches include fixes for SELinux, patches to allow systemd to
run within a container without
requiring --privileged mode.  Handling of multiple registries,  Proper
integration into the systemd, MachineCtl, journald.

And most importantly customers running on rhel will have a different
experience then on Centos.
