20120158396Application Compatibility Shims for Minimal Client Computers - This document describes techniques for allowing a computing device that provides a minimal execution environment to execute legacy applications that rely on rich functionality that the computing device does not natively provide. For instance, a device may initially receive a request to execute an application and may determine whether the application is directly executable. In response to determining that the application is not directly executable, the computing device may determine whether the application specifies another application to provide the functionality. If the application specifies another application to provide this functionality, then the computing device retrieves the specified application and executes the specified application on the client computing device. If the application does not specify such an application, then the computing device may execute a default application for providing the functionality. The specified or default application then executes the application that is not directly executable on the minimal-execution-environment computing device.06-21-2012

20120253780SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR EMULATING A NIC FOR PACKET TRANSMISSION ON HARDWARE RSS UNAWARE NICS IN A MULTI-CORE SYSTEM - Emulating a NIC for packet transmission on hardware RSS unaware NICs in a multi-core system enables each of a plurality of slave packet engines to emulate a NIC for packet transmissions locally even though the actual NIC transmissions from the queue are handled by a master packet engine only. Each slave packet engine treats a local software-implemented transmission queue as a device queue and uses the local queue to keep track of status of data from the packet engine in the device output queue, handled by the master packet engine on behalf of the slave packet engines. As the master packet engine transmits the data from the queue and the status of the queue changes, the master packet engine and the slave packet engines may use pointers to keep track of which data packets are transmitted, which data packets are drained and which data packets are still in the queue.10-04-2012

20100305936 METHOD OF OPERATING A COMPUTING DEVICE THROUGH THE USE OF EXTENSIBLE THREAD STATES - A personality layer running above an operating system kernel puts any threads that the personality layer is responsible for into new states which the kernel does not know about. This prevents the kernel from performing operations on a thread which has been placed in one of these new states where these operations are sensitive to state of the thread itself (such as kill, suspend, change priority). Instead, the kernel redirects these thread operations to a handler in the personality layer which then handles the operation. The kernel is thus, in essence, extensible through the use of the added personality layers, and it can therefore be used to run legacy real-time applications written for other real-time operating systems.12-02-2010
