I would expect that after task, a ramdisk can be used as rootfs, from
which deva can be started. I know the idea is to use a working deva for
starting rootfs, but that would put limits on the deva boot (with a root
fs, it can consist of normal processes, as they have everything they
need: physmem, task, and rootfs). Since a ramdisk wouldn't need any
device drivers, I don't see a problem with it.
Well, I see one problem: the ramdisk is only used for bootstrapping, and
should be disposed of when the system is running. So it would be useful
to have a "change root fs" method at least for deva and the first device
drivers (particularly harddisk and the "real" rootfs).
Am I right that "normal" processes can be started when the root fs is
ready? Can libc already be compiled? (I expect every normal process to
