This talk will present a status report on a number of Itanium kernel related projects being researched at Gelato@UNSW. An update on strategies for using large pages (superpages) to increase TLB coverage will be presented. A progress report on our page table abstraction layer will also be covered, along with an update on work to port a guarded page table (GPT) behind the API.
