 Live Kernel Upgrades

Kernel Trap tells us about Live Kernel Upgrades.

"Adi Zaimi recently asked on the lkml about the possibilty of allowing for live kernel upgrades, giving the ability to upgrade from one kernel to another without rebooting and interrupting services. This time, however, Rob Landley responded in a series of very informative emails explaining just how complicated of a prospect it is to perform live kernel upgrades. In response to the question, he first says, "Thought about, yes. At length. That's why it hasn't been done. :)" He then goes on to point out many of the details that complicate such efforts. Rob points out two projects of interest to anyone willing to attempt live upgrades."
