I try to port a Mach microkernel on arm9 architecture. and i have a
one problem - i dont understand  a process of context switch in this
kernel. in 2 place - when context switch  acquire from thread_sleep,
and next, when binary part of module loaded and this thread/task
should workl.

1. when thread_call in bootstrap.c called, context switch acquire. and
im looked on x86 sources, and dont see when CPU should switch in
different mode for correct context switching.

2. i made small chit, and call user_bootstrap from load_context and
send global thread and task information, but after loading binary part
of module (exec_load) and then build_args_and_stack (), i still have
in thread_stack PC point on swap_function. how module should proper
load, and how and thread information change to point on this executive

Thanks a lot.
