Today I read the DICE Manual 3.1.0 and it talks about something about
indirect IPC and direct IPC.
According to my understanding it seems like this:
indirect IPC: sender - > message buffer -> receiver
direct IPC: sender ->sender buffer -> receive buffer ->receiver.
But I think this understanding is wrong and I don't search something helpful
by google, too. If somebody knows please tell me.
In this manaul it says ln L4 version 4 all constructed data types will be
transmitted by indirect IPC not direct IPC. I also want to know why.
