See Ulf Wiger's answer :-). 

I can see cases where linked in drivers are necessary for performance reasons.
But are there any cases where C processes in the VM are necessary? I.e. why 
not have the process outside the VM and separated by the memory protection
provided by the OS? On systems such as VxWork, this would make no difference
but hopefully very few people are using such strange OS.
