Re: Status and future of 3rd party ABI compatibility layer

An awful lot of the compat stuff is now very compartmentalised, with not
much more work to do.

Is all compat code i386 specific?

No, bjh12@ got Linux emulation working for arm for example. And I don't think irix ever rather on x86 :-)

 Otherwise, do modules really work on
all architectures involved?  Can a module built from third-party code
be linked statically to a monolithic kernel without hassle, for systems
on which enabling loadable modules is not allowed?

Good questions.
