Hi Adam!

They are a good starting point to understand the principles. However the
mapping to the code is still unclear. Wouldn't it be possible to get a
student (HiWi) writing some documentation?

Yes. And that's exactly my problem ... :-(

First understand what the important code is.

mainly changes to the "Lower Half" of L4Linux. But I suppose there are
also changes required to the Syscall Interface. However, since I want to
port it to another L4 Interface, I'll also have to rewrite a lot more.
So I'm tending more to use either the L4Linux-2.4 (where there is no
documentation) or Wombat, which at least builds on the L4.X2 API.

Anyways, I fear I won't manage to do it within 6 weeks ... :-(

Thanks for the help,
