    SubjectRe: propolice support for linux
    Aside from all the arguments about why this patch isn't good for the
    kernel, everybody should be aware that the ProPolice gcc patches are
    pretty unusable. They rely in recognizing certain tree patterns which
    for some architectures do not exist, and for others can look
    differently, depending on the optimization. To paraphrase one of the
    gcc developers: "this kind of functionality should be written to work
    _with_ gcc, not _against_ it as the propolice patch does".

    Before you suggest using something like this patch you better first
    inform yourself by asking the people who actually know the code which
    is modified.
