Abstract

Conventional operating systems used to have device drivers as kernel modules or embedded objects. Therefore, maturity of a device driver influences on the reliability of the entire system. There is a method for constructing device driver as an user process for improving the reliability. Device driver process enhances the reliability of the operating system. However, device driver process has large overhead. In this paper, we propose a method for constructing device drivers process and evaluating these overhead. Also, this paper shows that the overhead of device driver process can be estimated.
