line 49 : L4::Cap<L4::Irq> irq = L4Re::Util::cap_alloc.alloc<L4::Irq>();

It seems this template name L4::Cap and the function name
L4Re::Util::cap_alloc are a bit misleading or only designate a sub-set of
the objects functionality. In this line you are not just requesting
permissions but getting a Unix style file handle that you then use to issue
commands to the server on line 92:


Is my understanding correct? At line 49 you are opening L4 equivalent of a
Unix style file handle for sending commands to a server and not requesting
permissions or am I over simplifying.
