To be honest, I share Rolands apathy about the whole thing.
I've not had a response about this stuff from Ingo about it, so I've pretty
much just given up on it. As of last month, I don't even have
any 32-bit only boxes, so I care even less about any of this than
I did before.
Well, this makes it easy! Just take all my patches. ;) Seriously, though,
I actually do care about this patchset since way too many people still have
crappy hardware or crappier BIOSes that disable NX, so I think this is
still important to keep around.
So, how about this as the current position:
- nx-emu only has value on 32bit when NX is unavailable
- ascii-armor only has utility when used with nx-emu
If we can agree on this, then Fedora and Ubuntu will be on the same page,
and we can share the same entire patchset (including my pending patch).
