What's the status of VKERNEL stuff? was one of the major things for
this release.

We are having a lot of problems with our IRQ routing code, i remember
you proposing a solution for it some time ago, do you think that it's
doable in time for the release? I wouldn't like to ship with stability
problems and in my opinion we should delay the release until that is

About testing, i think that we should start looking to do automated
regression testing of the system as much as we can. TET[1] looks like
a very good solution and FreeBSD is probably going to use it[2], so we
could get a lot of regression tests for free that apply to DragonFly.
