When I was on Plan 9, everything was connected and uniform. Now
everything isn't connected, just connected to the cloud, which
isn't the same thing. And uniform? Far from it, except in
mediocrity. This is 2012 and we're still stitching together little
microcomputers with HTTPS and ssh and calling it revolutionary. I
sorely miss the unified system view of the world we had at Bell
Labs, and the way things are going that seems unlikely to come back
any time soon.

local_irq_save() and local_irq_restore() were mistakes :( It's
silly to write what appears to be a C function and then have it
operate like Pascal (warning: I last wrote some Pascal in 66 B.C.).

So this is it. The big step why we did all the work over the past
kernel releases. Now everything is prepared, so nothing protects us
from doing that big step.

So really Rasberry Pi and Broadcom - get a big FAIL for even bothering to make a press release for this, if they'd just stuck the code out there and gone on with things it would have been fine, nobody would have been any happier, but some idiot thought this crappy shim layer deserved a press release, pointless.
