I have just started a similar research project, although my aim was to
run Erlang *without* an underlying OS on the NetLogic XLR/XLP
processor. I have the feeling the questions to be answered are not
completely dissimilar to your project.
I think the main areas of interest are making sure the scheduler and I/
O runs happily (requires either thread support or poll+select
support). Any other implementation details depend on your
architecture: filesystem availability, how you want to segment your
multicore processor: 1 VM per chip, many VMs per chip, will a
networking stack be available, etc.
There are some other UNIX / Windows dependencies, but they are very
