Thanx for your time.
I am afraid i will have to go with a linux solution.
I think though, that FreeBSD has the most high quality/manpower factor.

Anyways, i am kind of sad, i was too ambitious with this.
I learned something thanks to you.
Maybe some junior could pick and implement that project, as bktr addons, in 
the next SoC, or something.
