Re: binutils bug (Debian bug 336022 )

Ah, there they are, the mythical seg patches.
I just needed to follow the thread into the bug report.


Sorry if I've seemed OT here, but anyone who builds the kernel is probably 
going to run into this eventually when they upgrade binutils.
I assure you it will seem more interesting then.

 "To talk of many things:
 Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
 Of cabbages--and kings--
 And why the sea is boiling hot--
 And whether pigs have wings."
