Cache KernelFrom Kenneth Duda homepage, one of the authors:
The Cache Kernel is the privileged-mode portion of V++, a scalable multiprocessor OS. The Cache Kernel does not attempt to manage all system objects, but rather serves as a cache of active objects. It is up to user-mode application kernels to serve as backing store for these objects.
