Hardware, Embedded Systems In the world of alternative OS development, portability across multiple architectures is a challenging goal. Sometimes, it may be intrinsically hard to come up with hardware abstractions that work well everywhere, but many times the core problem is one of missing information. Here, I aim at learning more about the way non-x86 architectures deal with CPU IO ports, and in particular how they prevent user-mode software from accessing them.

I love looking back at the early Amiga days and wonder what might have been, wasn't going to reply but I'm really pedantic:

"to coin a phrase" means to invent a phrase, if it's then followed by a cliché I find it really jarring... enough to write a reply to someone I don't know, in the hope they don't do it again.
