Xavier,

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  
much localized.
