If you want to work on thread stack protection using MMU you can look at
thread <> for
the issues with my solution and possible resolutions to them.
You can clone the 'Final-release' branch of this
<> repo to get an idea of the
changes/additions that I had done and refer to this blog
a brief description of my idea
behind making those changes/additions.
Ideally, I would have liked to complete them for myself, this summer, but I
am not sure
if the time constraints that I have would allow me to pursue this right
