Interesting. Of course doors is a cross-process call mechanism, so it would
also fit in with that alternative. In fact it may well be possible to
implement wineserver as a door server on Solaris with a negligible amount of
There is also an implementation of something like doors for Linux
<http://ldoor.sourceforge.net/>, although that uses the mechanism of
replacing the calling process' address space with that of the door server.
This would avoid the problems associated with having to modify the scheduler,
but taken literally the door server doesn't have its own files, only those of
the caller. There might be some separate issues created by this.
