VKernel progress update - 8 Jan 2006 (milestone reached!)

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Mon, 8 Jan 2007 16:50:10 -0800 (PST)

    The virtual kernel is able to boot through to a login: prompt!
    (Fanfair, music, etc).


	The real init!	(turn on the console in /etc/ttys and turn
			 off everything else to get the login:

	The compiler compiles hello.c!  HELLLLOOOO WORLD!

	Most utilities.

	Even 'halt'!  Now how surprising is that?


	Anything that uses FP

	Anything that needs a network

	Most utilities, if you wait long enough.

    The hardest bits are done.  For the rest of this week I am going to
    get the FP unit working, clean up the console, and work out any
    other issues that pop up.

    Word to the wise: if you start playing with the vkernel, make sure
    to set the hostname to something different so you can recognize when
    you are in the vkernel verses when you are on your real machine.
    Otherwise 'halt' might have unexpected side effects :_)

		Virtual Kernel In Search of Network Interface!

    Would someone like to write a pseudo network driver for the virtual
    kernel this week, for the release?  Sephe maybe?  It has to be someone
    familiar with NETIF due to our release deadline.  The
    /usr/src/sys/dev/virtual/net directory is empty and waiting!
