I'm wondering: does lwkt system has anything to do with userland
threads? Do threaded programs linked with libc_r take advantage of SMP?
Yes and no, no.
There wasn't a lot of work on the userland front lately, only the
beginning of the framwork exists (userland LWKT). Other parts of
the system had a greater need for work.
libc_r is still the n:1 threading and therefore can't take advantage
of SMP other than the normal multi-processing.
With the LWKT, what model will it adopt? n:1 n:m? just a little curious.
