Re: pSos partition with linux
The closest match in Linux is a memory pool (linux/mempool.h),
starting somewhere in 2.5.x.
However, you can effectively ignore that and implement your
pSOS calls with kmalloc/kfree. The Linux memory allocation
is very efficient and if you use a lot of same-size objects
fragmentation is not much of an issue either.
In userspace, the closest equivalent to a pSOS process is a
Linux thread. You don't need anything special to share memory
between them. Here, as well, you can re-implement the pSOS
calls with simple malloc/free.
