==== Description: ====
Kaiser is a project to create a lightweight, efficient kernel that runs on
the majority of today's hardware (i.e x86 and x86_64 in the early stages),
currently the kernel boots in x86 (probably only with intel CPUs however!) and
then performs a hlt in virtual memory, the plan is to get it working in x86_64
also and then implement other features within in the kernel such as memory
management, a tcp/ip stack etc.

The kernel will be monolithic and will be using paged memory.

The kernel is written in C with AT&T syntax assembly code where it is needed,
that is, in the low level initialisation code.

The project will be special because it will be a very lightweight and
efficient kernel which will also support a lot of modern features that users
of a kernel come to expect from it.
