Kernel Modules Autoload from Host in Rump in NetBSD
By Thom Holwerda, submitted by ZacharyM on 2010-04-28 08:42:28
"Since early 2009 NetBSD and rump has supported execution of stock kernel module binaries in userspace on x86 architectures. Starting in -current as of today, kernel modules will automatically be loaded from the host into the rump kernel. For example, when mounting a file system in a rump kernel, support will be automatically loaded before mounting is attempted."
