Hey Adam & Folks,
unfortunately, my Server does some crypto stuff and thus is pretty slow.
Right now, my L4re-App (Client) is doing a IOStream::call() which i
assume is not appropriate in L4Linux, since it's waiting long.
So, L4Linux gets blocked with Istream::receive() and IRQ::receive(),
If this is true, i don't really see a clean way of an asynchronous
communication, is there?
