    What kind of crap is this?
    It is not the kernel's job to work around RedHat bugs.
    If RedHat ships a broken compiler, it is their responsibility to tell
    their customers and provide a working one.

    This kind of compatibility crap has caused commercial Unices to
    suffocate in their own bloat. We don't need this. And we don't want
    this.
