No, the purpose is to be able to run a DragonFly kernel as a userland
process, so I can mock-up clusters to test the SYSLINK protocol. The
SYSLINK protocol is the layer that will interface between machines in
a cluster and that same layer will also be used to interact with
remote filesystems (VFSs) and devices, and other things.
You can't email me directly from a PacBell DSL line. Your reverse
DNS is returning 'adsl-blah-blah-blah-blah.dsl.blah.pacbell.net'.
If it is a static IP I can add an exception, though. I need to
redo my spam filter at some point. I'll probably have to go to
a full verification scheme.
