Single Address Space

All processes and threads on the Mill share the same mappings of virtual addresses to physical addresses. This is made possible by using 64bit addresses which have an address space large enough for the forseeable future. Different programs are protected/isolated from each other with permissions in different turfs, not memory mappings. No memory remaps need to be done on task switches, and often task switches are entirely unneccessary due to this.
