I looked into the home page of the SSI project and it seems to have common
goals of the Phase-2 project. The difference is that we have things
not currenly on their road map (migratable sockets) and a memory
supports clustered shared memory (which they don't have).
To port something is nice for getting things quick, but I don't see phase-2
as wholy taking code from SSI. We will share components that are in common
with it (such as filesystems and such) but really the phase-2 stuff
affects the process schedule and VM subsystem. The stuff with sockets is
another matter and should be portable.
I myself only know the BSD kernel well and I think it would take a person
with equal knowledge of both kernels to realize a porting effort. Where
re-inventing the wheel is generally a bad thing, I consider it a good thing
when such system software is correctly implemented--which is not necessarily
possible in a porting effort.
