Just an idea for thought over your next coffee...

I'm if it would be to conceivably possible to move a vkernel process(and any
sub-processes it had) to another host? It'd have to stop temporarily, or at
least, slow down immensely while pumping all the userland data inside the
vkernel to the other host.

It might just be easier to have a vkernel powered by multiple physical
kernels (on different machines), giving the appearance of an SMP machine
inside the vkernel.

(Insert 40,000 lines of code here...)
