More problems would be solved if the kernel would drop bad system calls before they are in widespread use, instead of the stupid "stable ABI forever, even new bad ABI" mindset. The sooner crap is removed, the better. Only once it's in widespread use it's bad to break the ABI. But that can only happen if you didn't remove the bad ABI early enough. I hope one day Linus gets a clue about this.
