Hello Dr. Joel,

Dr. Bloom obviously have this approach lined up, and that is why he advised
me to go work on the low level support for some more bsp's in order to
start supporting a firm MMU/MPU interface to applications running. I guess
now I need to support more bsp's in order to get to a pragmatic design for
intermediate layers.

I may have missed this but Gedare has been working on adding
the mmap/shm services from POSIX. It would be nice for the
dynamic changes interface he mentioned to have an interface
to these calls. I am sure Gedare has thought of how this would
work already. :)
