    we're not talking about going from 2.0 to 2.2; we're talking about going
    from 2.0.33 to 2.0.34. In the past, many changes have been made which
    have broken binary compatibility without warning and without good reason.
    *THIS MUST NOT CONTINUE HAPPENING* if Linux expects to get anywhere.
