I added the inkscape patch, but I not certain that you have paragraph.
So I'm attaching the paragraph. I'll try to rebase against master soon,
so that you don't have to manually edit my patches.
To learn about microkernels, it can be helpful to compare microkernels with
kernels, which the following image does. You can see that the monolithic
have more things running inside the kernel mode, but microkernels generally
IPC, virtual memory, and scheduling inside the kernel. Some microkernels can
the scheduler in userspace!
Also notice from the image the "POSIX call" and "RPC calls" layer. On the
Hurd, this is glibc.
