If anyone wants a choice quote from me about the recent Linux holes, this is what I have to say:
Linus is too busy thinking about masturabating monkeys, he doesn't

For the record, this particular problem was resolved in OpenBSD a while back, in 2008. We are not super proud of the solution, but it is what seems best faced with a stupid Intel architectural choice. However, it seems that everyone else is slowly coming around to the same solution.
