I'm the main author and quote from my README in l4vfs/:
"L4VFS is a collection of interfaces, servers, and client and server
libraries. The name L4VFS is an abbreviation of "L4 virtual file
system". It is built around a name_server, which helps when dealing
with multiple objects in a hierarchical namespace.
L4VFS can be used to more easily port posix applications to L4, as the
client libs provide posix-like functions, that is, the client libs act
as an libc backend.
Please also look into the documentation in 'l4/pkg/l4vfs/doc' and in
If there is anything more detailed you would like to know, just ask, but
look into the docs before that.
