Rodger, dodger.

Let us know when you think you have something working pushed up into
one of the branches and we will put it on the bench here in the lab
and see what our runtime is able to do with it.

BTW, your new vDSO work appears to be shaping up well. Just out of
curiosity though, how are you testing and validating the new vDSO
based exception handler if it isn't possible to initialize and run an
enclave with the new driver?

We will look forward to hearing from you.

Have a good remainder of the weekend.
