not really, as long as windows 32bit dosn't change, colinux patch is not that far off.

Since the patches are falling further behind modern Linux, it seems to be
getting harder and harder to run a modern (think "non-end-of-life") Linux
distribution in coLinux.

Is the paravirt path one which coLinux could really take?  Are there
obstacles besides development time, such as design decisions needing to be
revisited?

Subject: Re: [coLinux-devel] Porting a Kernel

I had thought about this. the two approaches we can learn from is lguest and
paravirt.
basically colinux could be another architecture in kernel tree on host and
guest implement something similar to paravirt-ops.

What is the Linux kernel upstream position on any coLinux changes getting
merged, or has there been any discussion about this?

I'm sure some of the #ifndef CONFIG_COOPERATIVE changes might be considered
to spaghettify the code, but have alternative strategies been pondered or
proposed?
