"This reduces native kernel max memory support from around 127 TB to around 120 TB. We also limit the Xen hypervisor to ~7 TB of physical memory - is that wise in the long run?
"These random kernel boots found many 'impossible to trigger' bugs and races in the past. The reason for its race finding capability is the timing randomness of the resulting random kernel image: the delays caused by random combination of debugging facilities, build variants, kernel subsystem variants we have."
"Anyone who can correctly guess the method with which i found the exact place that corrupted memory will get a free beer next time we meet :-)"
"Is it your argument that consistent coding style is bad?
"[The] lkml is the right mailing list for reporting Linux bugs. This is an extremely harmful trend I've seen lately: some kernel hackers going out on a limb directing the flow of bugreports _away_ from lkml, by suggesting to testers that lkml is somehow inappropriate for reporting Linux kernel bugs."
"'Too small' and 'too insignificant' is not a patch attribute that is in my vocabulary - by definition the best patches are very small and very insignificant (they just happen to end up doing something cool a 1000 steps later ;-) 99% of our problems come from 'too large' and 'too intrusive' patches."
"Unless I'm missing something, your request for revert was pretty rude, technically incorrect and you also tried to circumvent the normal course of discussion."
