:I absolutely agree. We need proper kernel threading support though. I
:hope to work on this in the next time, but I always appreciate support.
: Somebody like kernel hacking?
I can't help with the programming but anyone who wants to take this
on please feel free to bounce ideas and code off of me.
At the moment I am very hard at work converting the entire BUF/BIO
system from 32 bit block numbers to 64 bit byte offsets, following
the plan I posted at the beginning of the year (and have made good
progress in). That alone is going to take several weeks to fully
test and stabilize.
Once that is done I will follow up with something 'fun'... a direct
buffer cache interface for read() and write().
And then, after that, finally, I will start implementing the grand
cache coherency management system that will start the chain of work
that will lead to VM space sharing between physical machines, process
migration, and other cluster-friendly things.
