I've been using it cleanly since about 1.3.100. I grabbed a 2.0.7 kernel,
re-applied it and turned it on.. and it still works great, thus far that I can
see.

The only problem I've had has to do with modules that tend to get their grimey
mitts into kernel functions that they shouldn't... including the confusing
memcpy. When they are insmod'ed they cannot find anything.

Outside of that (which is apparently not a lasting problem).. its shown a real
speedup! I only even have a P-75.
