Thanks for the answer. The paper on the FBSD VM rewrite was very informative and explained a complex issue of VM design clearly and coherently. It was enjoyable to read and I'll certainly be waiting for your future papers on Dragonfly.

BTW, I apologize for misspelling your name. Hope you're not holding this against me :)

Well, certainly, once time permits, I will write papers on various DragonFly mechanisms. The VM system is not something I intend to rewrite again, though certainly some modifications will eventually be required to make it more SMP friendly. I'm fairly satisfied with the current VM infrastructure. The only thing I really want to add to it is a device-layer copy-on-write feature to avoid read-fault-stall-on-write issues.
