Many questions. L4Linux is a port of the Linux kernel to run as an
application on L4. As such it can run on any system that L4 can run on,
basically any system that offers a memory management unit. L4Linux is
its current form runs on x86 and ARM systems. L4Linux can be used to run
any Linux application, as such it is not limited to a certain type of
application.  In this case it functions as a virtual machine. Maybe you
can rephrase your questions about threads to be more specific?
