    | Amen. USB 2.0 orinoco wireless drivers seems to have problems when user space
    | is set to 1GB. Works grat with 2GB ad 3GB user space settings. Problem occurs during
    | any acces to usb_read_device(). This doesn't look like a ABI problem, looks like
    | a problem with the USB subsystem. The serialize semaphore gets stuck for some
    | reason.

    What kernel version? I can't even find usb_read_device() in 2.6.9-rc1.

    BTW, as someone else requested, please teach your mail client to wrap
    lines around column 70-72. Thanks.

    | On the other topic, ABI compliance sounds a little restrictive since this is after all, an
    | open source OS. Most apps get recompiled and I always download open source
    | components for Linux.
