C++ will protect you from those things, too. You just have to bother to use it. In fact, if the criterion for being supported in the kernel is that you need to be C-compatible and offer a degree of safety beyond what C can manage on its own, it's rather odd that Rust has been chosen as the first such "additional" language.
