Discussion Topic

Device drivers:

GDB scenario:

In Linux Operating System, device drivers are also loaded into kernel along with operating system. Sometime these drivers get crashed due to some circumstances and operating system become not responding or restarts. To avoid these situations, first approach is to load these drivers into the core kernel. Secondly, these drivers can be loaded into kernel as a separate process.

In your point of view, which one is the best approach to resolve this problem. Justify your answer with reasonable arguments.
