Originally I tested the core mechanics in userland, and had an idea
to use it for the userland thread scheduler in a NxM configuration
(N kernel threads x M userland threads per kernel thread), using
async system calls.
That never worked out... it was just too complex and implementing async
system calls turned out to be basically impossible without rewriting
the entire kernel. So the module is no longer intended to be compiled
Thanks. Could we remove it then to simplify the file?
I'm all for it!
