Changing kernel constants seems a bit dirty, isn't it?

But tell me some about shared memory, please.

1.) is there an example, anywhere?
2.) Maybe on a further step, i'm planning to adapt my project to 
TrustZone. How does a communication between TrustZone Worlds work? Is 
Shared Mem. a better starting point than l4-IPC, when going to
