* It includes code from other people under GPLv2; I'm not sure if this may be 
an issue wrt licensing
   policy of Rump as this is only targetted at the pci-userspace module. In any 
case if you
   think it's an issue let me know and we'll try to find a solution:
   - intrthread() is heavily based on intloop() from hurd/libddekit/interrupt.c

I'm not worried about GPL, but I am worried about someone using GPL accidentally when 
they did not intend to.  It's better if the code can offered under LGLP, but not a 
requirement.  One option would be to put Hurd support under "gpl/src-hurd".  Or 
just be very explicit about the licensing both in LICENSE and README.

Hi Samuel,

According to the changelog you added this code to the Debian package in 2012. 
header in interrupt.c lists two people from University of Dresden. Given the DDE
heritage of the code, I'm not sure who's the author of intloop() routine, as it
is mostly Gnumach-aware code and seems unlikely to be part of DDE per se.

Do you recall where it came from?

Many thanks

Robert Millan
