understood! In that case I guess net related stuff should be delayed
till after Jeff has finished ....
. .. with whatsoever he's doing ;)
I'd like to know more about DF's net stack/netisr handling and the goals
in that area. I understand that your intention is to keep as much data
as possible locally. Yet, this is very tricky (and extensive) work when
it comes to protocol dependencies, routing code and alike. Per protocol
lwkt & messaging is a way out (I guess), but at the expense of writing
quite a bunch of net code from scratch ...
. .. so my basic question: Is this Jeff-only work for now? Are there any
goals/prototypes, yet? Anything written down? If that's still "confi-
dential" work, when will we you go public with this stuff?
Thanks for clues, pointers ... anything really.
