:  Could someone tell me how big the kernel is for the MIPS chip? I
:need a rough estimate of the size of a minimal kernel with networking
:support, probably no file systems nor disks. A project I'm working on
:is currently using VxWorks. We're suppose to add a bunch of large, off
:the shelf software components to it and I'm worried about running
:everything in one unprotected address space. (All it takes is the web
:browser to hickup and the box will crash. But hey, no one has ever
:heard of a web browser crashing!) Does anyone have an estimate of the
:process switching time? That's one of the things the hardware types
:harp about for their multimedia apps.
