The SPARC port of Linux is an interesting example of how the free software development model can be made to work. The port was acomplished by a loosly coupled team of progammers over the Internet. The project delivered a commercial grade distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system at the end of the project. The purpose of this paper is to give the reader an overview of the entire project. Some subjects are treated lightly, while the paper does go into depth where the authors found it… 
Using the IOMMU for Safe and Secure User Space Network Drivers
TLDR
A model of the IOMMU on the investigated servers was developed to enable the usage of it in further work and other drivers, as well as minimize the performance impact from using it.
