Currently we have a prototype of our OS (BS2000 - S/390 like mainframe os) 
running in big-endian mode on ia64 hardware. We have built a virtual 
environment within linux to let the OS running. Linux is used as the 
IO-system. Therewidth we have some experiences with the SWAP stuff. The 
target is to substitute linux with dom0 and to full paravirtualise the OS.
At the moment I do some groundwork in preparation for the port.
