I looked into the same a couple of weeks ago, but I don't remember the
rejects being very trivial. Perhaps I was using a bad combination of
Anyways, as far as I know openmosix sends the system calls of a migrated
process across the network to the original box where the process was
started. hence, the userspace runs on the other CPU, but as soon as
there is a system interaction it goes back to the original box. That
would make it seem to me that the context stays the same after
