    Phoronix: NVIDIA Working To Make Linux Safer For Cars, Robots & Other Safety Critical Environments

    NVIDIA is working on their own address space isolation (ASI) implementation for the Linux kernel that they hope will make the kernel safer for use within automobiles, robotics, and other areas where NVIDIA Tegra embedded hardware has a growing Linux-powered presence...

    This is quite big, and quite a lot of work but suprisingly reasonable idea to bring 3 contexts to kernel to isolate stuff away.

        Hmm, being Nvidia, I wonder where they will make sure that only works with their hardware....

          Considering the nature of the exploits they are looking to mitigate, it's either "a lot of work for one proper fix" or "a lot of work spread over a bazillion individual fixes". No matter where it comes from.
