You may have already seen it, but:


I have links in the Digest to Noah Yan's AMD64 work, some of which is
already committed.  I think Noah had some uncommitted work that was
available as a patch.  Some searching leads me to this git repo, which may
have newer code than what's committed:


I think Noah Yan's strategy was to work from the FreeBSD source, adapting
it to the changes in DragonFly as he went along.

Here's a post with Matt describing some of the inital steps; I think it
still applies:




My Digest posts probably don't catch everything; Noah Yan was active
during late summer/fall of last year, so looking through 2007/07 and past
on kernel@ will see some of his work history.

Is it possible to compile a 64-bit vkernel to test this stuff?  It would
make life easier, but I suspect it can't work realistically without having
a 64-bit "host" kernel.
