I just stumbled across this (via heise.de):
What are Fiasco's distinctive features (i.e., buzzwords)?
Fiasco is a preemptible real-time kernel supporting hard
priorities. It uses non-blocking synchronization for its kernel
objects. This guarantees priority inheritance and makes sure that
runnable high-priority processes never block waiting for
When using L4Linux on top of Fiasco, hard-real-time applications
can share one machine with time-sharing (Linux) applications.
Fiasco is a real, second-generation µ-kernel protecting
applications in address spaces. Thanks to its efficient task and
context switching mechanism and its performace-oriented design,
the performance penalties induced by address-space security are
neglible - much smaller than in older, first-generation µ-kernels
Sounds somehow interesting.
