    That correct, yes. SSP is actually used by quite a lot of vendors, and
    shouldn't be used outside of userland. Typically speaking it isn't, but
    in this case its being leaked.

    I've also heard some strange reports with ppc32 and 2.6.16 not
    decompressing properly all of the time which might be related. I've not
    been able to recreate this, nor heard any feedback yet.
