What I want to do.

I would like to tell you what I am trying to achieve.
I want to have Genode as a service system for RISC OS. When aarch32 is
dropped from Cortex cpu's it will also provide emulation services.
Right now I run RISC OS fully natively on core 1 and Genode on core 0
(A53). The reason for doing this on iMX8M is that it , since a week or so
, is supported by both systems.
Besides drivers , I also want to take advantage from some apps. A good
example is a webbrowser. Genode is much better suited to run such
applications. The idea is to run render and network tasks on Genode , but
with a RISC OS allocated buffer as its framebuffer. On RISC OS it will
look and feel like a native app.
It will also be a base for converting RISC OS kernel to C. By trapping
SWI's from RISC OS to Genode I can implement them in C/C++. The goal is to
have as much as possible running natively on aarch64. Today the RISC OS
kernel is assembler.
I want to keep the RISC OS experience as it is today, and this hybrid
solution is a experiment to see how it all can be solved.
If you don't like this project , please tell me now!
