I am thinking about writing user-level device drivers. When I searched Internet, I found the paper "An Architecture for Device Drivers Executing as User-Level Tasks" written by David B. Golub, Guy G. Sotomayor and Freeman L. Rawson, III. It might be exactly what I want but unfortunately, the paper isn't available for downloading on Internet. I wonder if anyone knows the work and more importantly, where I can download the code.

My plan is to write a user-level device driver for testing and ideally, to port ddekit to Mach if it is possible. The first device I choose will be ethernet card, which I think is the one I relatively familiar with.
Any suggestion is welcome!

Yay!! Someone is finally tackling this!! I have been looking at DDEKit, XNUs IOKit, and some others. I don't know shite but if I can be of any help, let me know!
