no, I meant modular IOS, not XR.  This was an attempt to run a non
bare-metal IOS.  The kernel was based on qnx (http://goo.gl/9RSwHn), and
cisco released it for the C6500 on the SXH and SXI code train.  It turned
out not to be much of a success in the end - very little of use was
modularised, and it was canned after two minor code train releases.  A bit
sad really, because it never had enough time to mature.  It was never
released for any other platform.  IOS-XE was a better implementation of non
bare-metal ios
