Yuhm !
Sounds very good :-)
I do not know a lot of thing about Linux Kernel development, but what are the
implication ?
Does this mean you are booting the system directly to the Erlang virtual machine ?
How will this be related to the Erlang boot process ?

Is your project hosted on Sourceforge ?

It might be the right time to update the Erwolf project, an Erlang-Linux based
distribution :-)
