I am Abhinav Jain, a second-year engineering student from Delhi, India. I
have been working in Linux Kernel Development, I have been writing small
drivers and have a good knowledge of the operating system.
I have been studying about Memory Protection project(ticket #2904) for
around a month and found it really interesting. I studied about POSIX, MMU
support in various other architecture and the memory protection APIs in
various operating systems.I have been discussing the same on the mailing
I also solved an issue (#2522) around a week ago to gain some hands-on code.

Welcome aboard.

I would like to work on the Memory Protection project under GSOC 2018, so I
request you to please guide me regarding the steps to be followed.

Gedare conceived of what's there be so I cc'ed him. My recollection is that
there were specific things he wanted to change and when that was addressed,
providing support for arenas on multiple architecture is desirable

Thanks and Regards
