SubjectRe: ARM undefined symbols. Again.

Fair enough. "ARM" doesn't end up being just one architecture, and that's
a good point.

No, let me be the last to argue for centralized Q&A. Doesn't work. I'd
rather argue that it's not an issue of trying to get everybody to upgrade
and making old versions "not supported". It seems more benign than that,
in that it should be sufficient if there were just enough new versions out
there, for some arbitrary value of "enough".

In particular, it seems downright _wrong_ that an issue like this has been
around forever, and nothing has actually been done about the fundamental
problem. At some point, "kernel build bandages" are just not worth it any
more, if people aren't even trying to actually fix the real issue.

And one year of apparently "no progress" smells. Bad.
