Rather than static linking, we could embed the crunch filesystems in an ELF section. This would:

  • speed up compilation time by not passing the block device through ocamlopt
  • not require a dynamic block device
  • not map the data in memory twice, since it wouldnt be in the code section.

See https://devel.unikernel.org/t/includeos-filesystem-api/108 for the IncludeOS thread on this, so we can obey the same ELF section convention.

There is now https://github.com/dinosaure/caravan which does this (pending mirage integration).
