I hope this is the right place, havent read anything here for ages.
I was wondering whether the palcodes used by L4 on Alpha are disjunct
to the ones used by OSF / BSD / Linux.
If not could they be made disjunct?
The idea I have in mind is to make a module for linux that catches the
L4 syscalls and throws them back into user-space. That way a L4
environment could be setup within linux. It would be much like
user-space-linux and would save a lot of reboots just to test out a
few bytes of code.
On the other hand, inside L4 you could do the same with OSF / BSD /
Linux syscalls and thus run their binaries under L4. (You want to run
Netscape under L4? Or Mathematica? Or something as simple as xemacs
A l4-linux for alpha would also need those changes (if any) I believe.
