Thread id, turf id, and address spaces are all virtualized. If we have any other kernel-known spaces they will be virtualized too.

The main advantage of the Mill ISA is that there are no privileged operations; all protection is by address using the PLB. Consequently it is immune to the endless corner cases that special ops cause for other ISAs.
