The idea is there.Maybe a bounty for ASMP could actually move things.
Even thought I lack multicpu morphos machine I would donate some bucks
Krashan should be asked first as I guess he's the one who may be interested... something like:
-Implement asymetric multi core support in MorphOS 3.x performing required changes to Exec/DOS and the rest of the OS
-performing the required changes to libnix/ixemul to make easier supporting various cores. Perhaps modifying CISC libpthread to support the new MProcess... he's the one who decides.
-Provide developer docs and examples (a reggae class perhaps?)
@Krashan: if you are reading this please reply and tell us what do you think and what would be the minimum you require. Perhaps setting some smaller goals: If bounty reaches X I will implement AMP, if it reaches X*2 I will also adapt XYZ system component to use various threads (reggae or cairo.library for example), if it reaches X*4 I'll adapt OWB and MPlayer (and perhaps share a part with Fab)
