Doesn’t the XOR make it hard to fork?
It means the OS needs to find a turf id such that when globalizing addresses, they don’t overlap with global addresses that are already in use.
And what is it that you XOR? you have that register with the current turf, you xor that with a local pointer to globalize it? I guess I am a bit confused why you chose xor as opposed to simply adding, then the register essentially has the starting address of the current turf.
