There are parts that are common, and parts that are different.  Some stuff
can be factored out into a function, but this will happen naturally when the
code develops.  Frankly, I find premature factorization to be a waste of
time.  One could very well argue that the current code already contains too
much of it, and too less (depends on where you look at :)

The task server should manage its memory as any other task in the system, by
using physmem caps.
