New Sheriff in Town: Promoting Application Threads to Kernel Privilege for Performance, Profit, and ... Safety???

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this talk, we consider what becomes possible when application threads running in userspace can temporarily take on the full privilege and access of the supervisor execution mode (kernel mode). While this might sound radical, we argue this approach has a close analogy to the kernel module subsystem we know and love.
