Abstract:

This work describes a concrete prototype implementation of fast Local Interprocess Communication for the L4 version X.0 microkernel. The main idea behind LIPC is to extend kernel-level threads with user-level characteristics, which means user-level IPC with kernel-level threads is in special cases possible. The necessary synchronization between the different user and kernel-thread context can be done lazily when the kernel entry is inevitable (e.g. timer interrupt).
