the separation of kernel and binaries has significant
As discussed off-line, DragonFlyBSD, or any other BSD, already does this
at least as well as, if not considerably better than Linux.
Note, for example:
- that in the interval between make installkernel and make installworld
one is running the new kernel with (most of) the rest of the world still
- that both binary updates and using a spearate 'build box' then rolling
out only what one needs have long been a part of the production *BSD
Swapping between kernel and kernel.old or kernel.prev is nothing new,
nor is scp'ing a new kernel (only), or a selected binary or several out
to remote boxen.
Can DragonFlyBSD further improve on this? Absolutely!
Would it be wiser to NOT try to be quite so across-the-span-of-years
