L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_RAISE_EXCEPTION flag needs to bet set every time. But
L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_ALIEN doesn't need. My test program could run as what i
want to do.
But what is the difference between L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_ALIEN and
In the L4Linux i found you use L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_RAISE_EXCEPTION|
L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_ALIEN but not only L4_THREAD_EX_REGS_ALIEN? What
considerations do you have?
Thanks a lot.
