Im just wondering (namely Simon),whats the status of 1:1 userland
threading? What's holding it back? I thought there was meant to be a
lot of work done before new years even during the hackathon.
we did some stuff and we planned even more. we're few people, so it won't ever go fast. next on the plate are changes to userland so that kinfo_proc will be independent from struct proc (no more proc size missmatch) and lwps can be exported.
after this is done, we in turn can again change structures in the kernel without having to drag the userland along all the time.
i'm waiting for the release to be branched before working on it again. no need to destabilize the release. additionally, it is a bitch to work with multiple patches in CVS :/
