Hmm,

So would main processor still need a copy of the data for re-transmission?
Won't that defeat the purpose?

Exactly what I suggested: sys_ioroute()

"Providing generic pipelines and io routing as Linux service"
Msg-ID: <20030718134235.K639@nightmaster.csn.tu-chemnitz.de>

on linux-kernel and linux-fsdevel
