Hi everyone, I use a mips board with an AU1000 processor. I wrote a mini boot program which initializes the onboard hardware and gives a little terminal access to it in purpose to write and erase flash and set some small commands. This program shall be extended to a mini boot loader which starts a linux kernel. The kernel is already prepared as an ELF or SREC file and can be written to t...

I have maybe stupid question. From QNX I know every each driver acts as process having threads. Each thread has schedulinng scheme and it's own priority. How it's in Linux? I mean no user space, but kernel space. It looks for me like unpredictable bunch of mess. Can I somehow manage priorities even for the drivers? I'm using Denx's distribution. Or do I have to use some extensions?

Here are a couple of questions: 1. Why? 2. Are kernel...
