At first glance, this looks to be a kernelville implementation of the
same mechanisms by which tripwire is made to work.

At second glance, it looks with all the kevents, filters and
other things going into the kernel and talking out the other end,
we seem to be heading in the direction of a message-passing kernel
with fewer context switches than a pure message-passing microkernel.

I might be misreading, too.
