saying so doesn't make it so. prove it. getting a fix upstream would be fine. then we can move on to the remaining ones, there's quite a few more lines left in linux (nothing to say of the rest of the code we have out there ;).

wrong, that line of code would also be buggy, since it's part of 'every single line', so you'd be replacing buggy code with buggy code. reductio ad absurdum, if you believe in his nutty theory, you'd have eliminate all code in existence to properly fix any bug.
