SubjectRe: Updated 2.4 TODO List -- new addition WAS(test9 PCI
   Date: Thu, 12 Oct 2000 04:18:23 +0200
From: Andrea Arcangeli <andrea@suse.de>

I disagree the stability/feature ratio needs are different between
kernel and userspace (at least excluding the FPU handling that of
course doesn't matter for kernel :).

Tell that to people who want a %100 standards compliant c++ compiler.
:-)

Offering that adds a certain amount of risk. It may be desirable to
not take that risk for building the kernel, and the kernel has no c++
needs thus...

Often, suitability of a compiler for the kernel is based upon time in
widespread use.

I have no arguments against your statements that 2.2.x, 2.4.x should
be fixed to build with the newer compiler. It should be fixed as soon
as possible, without question.

Later,
