Ok Matt,

hope you can make it into the release.

I am aware of your budget and I am willing to work within it, regardless of
how long this task ultimately takes me.

Hey Matt,
Sweet as. How much do you charge per hour?

Noone? Im willing to pay up to $150 AUD ($110 USD, approx 80-90 euro)
for those couple of functions + ensuring that PowerDNS-Recursor works
after that. Please consider an estimate of how long its going to take
and let me know(i suppose it might take only like 30 mins for some of
you). Let me know your hourly charge. However keep in mind that i will
always double check with other devs that im not being ripped off(not
that im cheap, but i know you understand i dont do C thus i cant say
long its going to take...parents taught me to always be careful with
money and all)

I've started working on this, using the FreeBSD implementation as a
cut for DFly.

It was asked earlier on in the thread why FreeBSD used syscalls for
this --
it's best to look at the commit comments for rev 1.9 of ucontext.h for
reasons -- http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/i386/include/ucontext.h

I'll be following the FreeBSD lead for the first cut; I'll see what we
do to improve on this in our world as a follow-on.
