Not worthy of re-releasing but one small "patch" is page 16 of the pdf
(labelled as page 9 on the top) which reads:
"the init code is quiet architecture dependent"
but should probably read
"the init code is quite architecture dependent"
It's a small thing, but whenever I read a technical document and see
small errors like that, it distracts me from the main point of the
article and makes concentrating on the original document harder.

I don't know how to code in tex (maybe one of these years I should
learn), otherwise I'd offer a tex patch for you to apply.

I'm sure I'm not the first to catch that error, given the number of
people who are probably interested in the article you wrote, it's quite
a document. It was also very nice of you to share it with the world
gratis.
