CS604 GDB 01 Discussion

In Linux Operating System, device drivers are also loaded into kernel along with operating system. Sometime these drivers get crashed due to some circumstances and operating system become not responding or restarts.


To avoid these situations, first approach is to load these drivers into the core kernel.
Secondly, these drivers can be loaded into kernel as a separate process.


In your point of view, which one is the best approach to resolve this problem. Justify your answer with reasonable arguments.

According to given scenario device drivers should be loaded into kernel as a separate process as it improves stability as the executing code has no ability to directly access hardware or reference memory. Due to the protection afforded by this sort of isolation, crashes in user mode are always recoverable.
