    Hmm.  The first one has more information but is very old.  Most of
    the stuff on the site is from 2002.  The second one was done in 2005
    but has no significant information.  The diary here seems to have
    more recent info:


    But I still have not found a good technical description of what they
    are doing.  Are they actually using ptrace to manipulate dummied
    up processes in the real kernel to shadow the emulated processes
    in the UML?  That sounds pretty wasteful.  But that was described in

    I feel kinda sheepish.  I've only spent two months doing the DragonFly
    V-kernel and it never felt like a big deal to me.  Just grunt work.
