It's interesting to see these "big iron" patches still comming in. I seem to recall that LWN speculated a while ago that companies like IBM might end up forking, given that large scale system design is often in conflict with Linus' push to get the kernel doing interesting things on small devices.
I wonder if anyone can tell me how much of an issue this conflict is now, and whether the threat of a big iron fork is real or not?
