First you'd have to use C++ in a Linux driver, which is tricky all by
Humm, I'd say, all in all, no. You definitely don't have unwinding in
kernel mode. This means you must disable exceptions. But the exception
replacement system in Boost calls abort(), I believe, and I don't think
this call links in kernel objects. (I don't want to know what it would do.)
