    Subjectquestion : is the init process of kernel running in kernel space or user space?
    Hi all,

    In the linux system , kernel is often starting up like this :

    bootloader -> start_32() -> start_kernel() -> init()

    i would like to ask what is the piority level in this starting procedure
    ? 0 or 3 ? that means, this start up process are running in kernel space
    or user space ? or the level is keep changing ?
    If it is in kernel space from the very beginning , at which point the
    system is switched into user space ? is it at the time when kernel open
    the shell ?

    I am new to linux, hope someone can help me here.
