The patches you find in:

http://programming.kicks-ass.net/sekrit/patches.tar.bz2

are actually running on my machine now.

One of the things I was considering was further shrinking the max basic
block size from 4k to maybe 1k or 512 bytes. Not sure what a sane basic
block length limit would be.

I did try 1k earlier today and I seemed to still get near 100% rewind
success rates.

Stephane, Andi, any clues?
