Let me analyze each one of these..

Replace with crappy.

make it "bite the big one"

this (*^$ off.. nice job Fujitsu

Torvalds @#$%ed it up :-)

task can (*$)^ it up. (or muck)

Either @#$%in' or screwin' up.

What is the point of a comment? To give others insight into what the code
does, and why.

Frankly, without the peppered comments, you might not quite understand just
exactly how badly code has to be hacked to get it to work, thanks to our
friends at Fujitsu and Sun, for example.

However, as Linux will (IMO) become a more legitimate competitor with
commercial OS's, things like this might damage our credibility. It's not a
problem with other companies (which surely pull the same stuff) but they
don't go releasing sources and having it freely distributed...

Just tone it down; the comments are insightful, yet you can be as colorful
without the direct influence of the colorful words.
