(unfortunately vger's spam filter ate my mails, so you'll have to piece the story together from the quoted parts). the funny thing is that since last year, when CFS (by Ingo, no less) went into the kernel, it too became victim of the user_mode() mess in that now if you run an endless loop in v86 mode, its runtime will be accounted as system time, not user time. to quote Linus: 'Sad.'

it's the other way around: i've been told explicitly and got it even codified in DCO that anonymous submissions are not to be. i prefer my status over silly policies.
