v86d(8) daemon to run x86 code in an emulated environment




v86d provides a backend for kernel drivers that need to execute x86 BIOS code. The code is executed in a controlled environment and the results are passed back to the kernel via the netlink interface.

v86d should NOT be run by the user, the kernel will call it, when it is needed.


v86d is written by Michal Januszewski.
