No, nothing happened yet... as an alternative i can see two basic NetBSD

1) have a system call
        msyscall_block([lwp,] from_addr, to_addr)
that blocks from the specified range all system calls. Easiest to add.

2) have a system call
        msetemul([lwp,] emulspec, from_addr, to_addr)

that sets the emulation type for the specified memory range allowing say linux
libs to be linked to NetBSD libs etc... can/could also be used to insert a
system call block as `emulation'.

or we leave it as it is now...

With regards,
