[imlbinkm] Many computers as one

A distributed system simulating a single system with lots of cores is (probably) a nice abstraction for the programmer, vaguely similar to distributed memory simulating shared memory.

OpenMosix and successors (LinuxPMI) seem mostly dead.

Maybe Linux LXC.  Probably need live migration.

Design an operating system to make this kind of stuff doable.
