Is anyone still involved with sbuml?
SBUML is one technique for saving and restoring running UML processes.
I would love to get this working with the current 2.6 SKAS kernels.
I am thinking about picking this code up to see if it can be fixed, or usin=
of the other core dump techniques out there already to perform a
similar function, or
perhaps using the new kernel hibernation approaches. Im keen to start using=
technology to implement virtual processor farms.
Any thoughts? I am a little bit of a kernel hacker from the good old days, =
I have not done anything on 2.6 myself.
If someone is already working on this could you let me know. Maybe I can he=
push this forward.

I don't know how active it is now, but it would certainly be nice to have.
The current sbuml is totally standalone, in the sense that it doesn't plug
into swsusp or anything. Last I looked at swsusp, that was a good thing.
Maybe it's different now, and it makes sense to plug into it.
In any case, having a reasonable suspend to disk would be good.
