I keep meaning to update this thing and not finding the time. Although — I guess I just did.

On the work front, things are going fine, albeit a little slowly at the moment. After having been focused on the IOMMU bringup for so long and finally getting it working, we submitted the OLS paper documenting it all on April first. A huge pressure drop immediately followed, nicely timed to coincide with the Passover vacation. Since then I’ve been concentrating on a bunch of internal stuff, including that other super-secret research project, merely keeping the Linux and Xen IOMMU patches sync’d with mainline. Current plan is to get it all merged into Linux and Xen by OLS.

On the home front, we’ve been busy looking at and rejecting houses in Haifa and the surrounding areas. We finally found one place that we like, has no deficiencies we can’t live with and is affordable. Negotiations are now taking place. I hope it all works out — I can’t wait to move into a house of our own.

What else? I’ll be traveling to NY and Boston next month, first to Watson to meet a bunch of people and then to Fast/OS and Usenix. I’m looking forward to it!

Today’s piece of code that makes me want to bang my head against the wall repeatedly:
