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
        have time to care about Linux security.

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.
