That explains why the patch below never worked on my Q950. I never sent 
the patch because I figured there was something, well, fixable. It works 
on CUDA. I think I tested Mac II ADB too, but I don't remember the 

I'm pretty sure that Roman's "move to adb/via init" comment* related to a 
build failure that Al Viro since fixed**.
