Regarding "BPF" ( in kernel trace tools ) REFERENCE:
This is the first time I've read any notes regarding "BPF"; hopefully this is available only in the developer edition for use in the lab.WHAT ABOUT THE CODE?
But, enough of the personal and social issues of Linux, what about the code?
We spoke about the rise in use of the BPF in Linux. As Jon Corbet, kernel developer and editor of LWN, explained in a keynote at Open Source Europe, BPF is an in-kernel VM. It's different from the others, because it allows user-space processes to load processes into kernel space.
Traditionally, Linux is made of the kernel and user space and never the twain shall meet -- except by well-defined application programming interfaces (APIs).
