Abstract : There are two types of chores that execute in the supervisor: supervisor-promoted chores (SPChores) are created as a result of a user chore entering the OS via a call to a supervisor library routine, and execute within the user's address space; supervisor daemons (SvDaemons) exist independently of any particular user task, and execute within the OS domain on each processor. SPChores execute on behalf of the user to fulfill a particular request for system services, whereas SvDaemons provide assistance for system-wide services such as networking and file systems. The runtime model for SPChores has been defined elsewhere. This document presents a design for the SvDaemon runtime model and interface. This is a preliminary design, and subject to change.
