I thought that "libnative" would be a better place since this way we would avoid the user mode -> kernel mode switch. > ...Or, we might auto-generate some dummy name in native/syscalls.c we would > pass > to the registry when this situation arises, so that anonymous creation and use > from user-space would still be possible. Yep, in this case a name would be a string == object's address, thus it's unique. Ok, I'd probably vote for the 2-nd approach. > -- > > Philippe. --- Best regards, Dmitry
