"As part of the kernel evolution toward modular naming, the functions malloc
and mfree are being renamed to rmalloc and rmfree. Compantibility will be
maintained by the following assembler code: (also see mfree/rmfree below)".
Greek is phonetic: I can read real Greek (badly) and Greek listeners will
understand what I'm saying (while wincing at my accent) even if I don't. So
just treat the text like a cypher and it's easy.
If you presume that the editor was in a hurry, all that happened was the
didn't go rightwards enough words (or perhaps went back a word instead of
forward) before appending the closing parenthesis to the ulong_t cast.
Naturally, all of this is moot since the code is BSD-derived anyway.
WRT WayBack, Reasons To Believe
moved to a totally dynamic website not long ago, even for pages with static
content, and the only reason I can see for this is that archive.org will then not
cache it, but there will be no record of them (nor will they ever have to admit)
asking WayBack to remove it. The reason for this is that their story changes
often, and if their ideas aren't crazy and inconsistent enough as-is, any archive
of their site would completely shred the credibility of what remains.
In point of fact TSG's conference stuff (from which I drew a
contact list) isn't archived, and was hurriedly pulled by TSG (who will say
"but it finished" despite leaving last year's page up for ages), but Google still
has a cache of it as at now.
