Subject[RFC][0/11][MANUX] Kernel compatibility : introduction
Hello, World^W LKML-ers!

I've written a little clone of the Linux kernel from scratch
(http://www.manux.info). It only runs on x86-32, is far smaller and far
less advanced, and some syscalls are unimplemented (and many
functionnalities are lacking), but it's otherwise binarily compatible
with Linux; and I would like to keep it this way.

However, since both its internal architecture and its userspace
conception are very different, I've had to make some adaptations, and I
would like to ask you some question about them in order to avoid future
trouble. Since they relate to very different areas, I'm going to post
them in separate emails after this one.

Since I have had only one user beside myself so far, if there's
something that you think is problematic, I can make changes, and even
break my own binary compatibility if needed (although I would obviously
prefer not to); just tell me about it.

Thank you for your attention!

Emmanuel Colbus

P.S. : I read LKML through hypermail, so you don't need to keep me CC'd,
but if you do, please keep the [MANUX] tag in the subject, otherwise my
antispam will reject your mail.
