    it should be very easy for you to prove me wrong then. I've got a very
    simple question: please tell me, how do i run a binary compiled for an
    iBCS2 platform under Linux v2.6.23?

    I've got plenty of v2.6.23-running testsystems, tell me, if i wanted,
    how could i run any iBCS2 binary on them? All i see is a massive,
    2.4-kernels-only patchkit:

    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/hch/linux-abi/v2.4/

    which external patch-kit was not picked up by major distros and which
    was never integrated into the upstream kernel either. iBCS2 support in
    Linux 2.6 simply does not exist.
