    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It may be possible, but not easily feasible. C++ code requires startup initialization code that is not "kernel friendly" because kernel modules are not normal applications and processes, but are more on the order of dynamically linked in libraries of code that are accessed via jump tables and ioctl calls.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
