1K? How about getting your facts straight.  Besides, the point is that this
does not belong in the main package since it's a hack.

For the amount of thinking that went into those bug reports, I must say
that you deserved it.  96854 is a rehash of an issue that's already before
the TC.  You made it out as if you were actually solving an issue (the
common parts kernel-headers).  Now either you're just plain stupid or
it's a wind up.  With your record, I can't really tell which is the case.

Well I certainly hope to see more maturity and serious thought in your
future bug reports.
