    So, encouraging non-uniform terminology, breaking applicates *and*

    people trying to confuse things are the disk vendors. DRAM is
    sold by the MB, everyone talks about MB == 1024*1024... I'm
    having a hard time giving a sympathetic ear to anyone try to
    change the well established, and consistent (barring the storage
    venduhs), standard.

    And disks by the GB where GB == 1000^3 so I don't see any problem in
    moving from KB to KiB and friends ESPECIALLY AS THEY ARE STANDARDIZED
    BEYOND THE KERNEL and nothing will change this.
