Right again, but i can recall that early Linux feature: hey, our video processing is in userspace, so you have much less chances of lockup guys! I slowly fades out. I want to add more about kernel in general, former Torvalds told 'move as much as possible out to userspace!' now it seem for me that everything moves in opposite direction and kernel is bigger and bigger. Yes, it's unavoidable again. But pity that some ideals lost.
