Well, all the core servers operating below the POSIX level: task, exec,
proc, auth, passwd, pipe... I'm not quite sure about pfinet and ext2 --
these implement some specific POSIX interfaces as well, but I think they
rely on the main POSIX mechanisms being in place, so I guess they don't
need special handling here.

(ext2 logging to a syslog file on the ext2 partition, or pfinet logging
to syslog over network, might make for interesting effects though... I
guess this problem also requires some consideration.)

I don't see why. Just because they run in user space, doesn't mean they
are automatically high-level.
