    great - i've created tip/x86/dumpstack for this and applied your patches
    there. (that branch embedds tip/x86/core which already embedds
    tip/x86/traps)

    it also passed -tip testing still then so the changes are fine.

    Generally if you see your commits show up and stay in tip/master it
    means they get tested with a newly built random kernel about once every
    two minutes or so.

    regarding klibc, that's interesting: is that the in-kernel klibc from
    hpa? Which tree are you using to pull that into tip/master? (unless i
    misunderstood what you are doing)

    Ingo
