Exactly.  In our case, the user-mode app we're working with makes use of the
host's shared memory to simulate shared memory between multiple embedded
devices.  I'm not averse to re-writing that to use ethernet instead of the
host's shared memory, but it'd be one less thing to re-write for this phase
of our conversion.

Sorry about the cross-post.  It honestly didn't occur to me that I was
posting the question to the wrong list.
