    You wouldn't perhaps be one of the dirtbag "suits" responsible for the
    death of:

    printk("lp%d on fire\n", minor);

    now, would you? ;) Geez, even the latest Macs are happy to pop up
    a window saying nothing more than "System Error -0132154. OK?" prior
    to rebooting on you.

    Besides, how many people do you know of that try to run linux on
    sx16 boxes with only 1MB of RAM? You would have to be pretty
    dain-bramaged to try and load anything modern on a box with only
    1MB of RAM, and expect it to work. (However, I will admit to booting
    linux on boxes with less than 1MB of RAM, but it is pretty slow.)
