Idea w/r/t virtualization -
Wouldn't it be way cooler if dragonfly had it's own KVM-like
implementaiton that was implemented in a vkernel-like fashion?
started digging around in the VT-x instruction set a while back,
didn't get anywhere (Aach time!) - with the goal of writing a kernel
module that added a syscall that added 2 numbers in a separate
which could then form the basis of bootstrapping further..
seems to me like the VMspace API could be remapped to work against
the virtual machine instructions with not too much glue-code + ASM
rather than supporting xen, which seems to be a much more complicated
this is all highly speculative, however..
