[Beowulf] open mosix alternative

It seems that much of the effort that was going into openMOSIX is now going
into KVM.

I think the idea is that MOSIX functionality is more easily developed and
deployed in the form of virtual machines than directly at the kernel level.
There are some trade-offs, of course... more overhead being chief among them
but the virtualization model is clearly the overall favorite.  It sure does
beat the heck out of having to track each kernel individually.

does anyone know an altenative to openmosix?? would it be worth reviving the
development of the kernel?
