View-OS - Kernel patch for better UMView performances

View-OS is a novel approach to the process/kernel interface. The semantics of each system call can be assigned process by process giving the user the right to decide which view of the system each process has to join. Each process can "see" a different file system structure, networking resources, processor, devices. Moreover some of the resources can be provided by the user him/herself, thus these resource can be private to the single process and are not known a priori by the system. Groups of processes can share the same view but this is just an optimization to share management methods.

For more information, see

This package contains a couple of kernel patches that should be used together with UMView. Though not required, they consent dramatic improvements in performances. These patches are quite general and can also be used by other virtualization software (as User Mode Linux, or everything that uses the ptrace() system call) to increase performances.
