Actually its a mix of the two, kernel proccess's managed by a kernel
scheduler. (light weight kernel threads, scheduled by a thread manager),
that interact by passing msgs around.

while some things may be exported (visible) to userland, they will actually
be dealt with inside the kernel. 

so really none of the existing models really applies.. 
this is my understanding, I am quite sure i'll be corrected if wrong.
