The event pipeline The fundamental Adeos structure one must keep in mind is the chain of client domains asking for event control. A domain is a kernelbased software component which can ask the Adeos layer to be notified of:
· Every incoming external interrupt, or autogenerated virtual interrupt; ·
Every system call issued by Linux applications, ·
Other system events triggered by the kernel code (e.g. Linux task switching, signal notification, Linux task exits etc.).

Question: Adeos is supposed to be between the hardware and the Linux kernel, I can understand about Adeos telling the Linux about hardware interrupts but Why should Adeos know about the "system call" issued by Linux?
