Firstly, I hope this email is in the correct format.... I am sending from gmail, and have disabled the rich text formatting stuff.
I was just wondering, what will be the interaction between LWPs (I saw a commit message indicating we will be implementing these) and LWKTs.
Also, in the conext of DragonFlyBSD after this change... what will a "process" entity actually be?
I notice in a commit mesasage that a mapping of one LWP to one process is currently enforced, will this change?
What distinguishes a classic process from a LWP? (reading'moden operating systems', i thought a process was something that had executable conext, possibly multiple (i.e. a threaded program), but included all associated file descriptors etc... not sure what this new subdivision does).
proc 2 <-> lwp 2 <-> lwkt 2 [multi threaded] \> lwp 3 <-> lwkt 3
Hope this question does not seem too stupid.
