Yes, I'm still working on it.  The focus of that work was copy-on-write
sharing of memory for the purposes of building a (virtual) network of
honeypot systems.  We have a paper in SOSP this year, talking about that
work and the copy-on-write memory implementation.  See
for some information.

I'm presently working on updating and cleaning that work up.
