    These are typical benchmark or test programs which I like to write with
    as little dependencies as possible because they compile/run on all kinds
    of systems with often dubious setup.

    The other issue is that everyone will have to do this now, which just
    seems wrong to me.

    -Andi (who never got this strange meme which is floating around
    in the kernel community for some time that cut'n'pasting interfaces
    into user programs is a sane thing. To me it seems insane.)
