Well, about the I2O idea i dont have real code, only some simple "sketches"!!...very soon the "thing" revealed itself as being way,...way over my head, even considering going heavy on cut and paste, and even considering that the idea was to use the already in kernel I2O implementation, and build a simple virtual machine "under the kernel" to simulate a central IOP, (I/O Processor) as specified in V2_spec in www.inteligent_IO.com!!!...
But i,m pretty sure that the IBM Almaden Research Center has the talent, and perhaps the will to invest in such a feat.
...althoug, and since the 2.5 model has evolved for grouping devices into classes, why not???...document into standars the "alwoed" calls involved, per classes, and in such a way that the printk()(example)will always be what a loadable module could expect, and avoid since the use of schemes like modversions.
