But there is some code, which is poorly tested exactly because it is compatibility code. One relatively recent example: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=3e645d6b485446c54c6745c5e2cf5c528fe4deec > I'm extremely sceptical to this patch; > it feels like putting code in a super-hot path to paper over a problem that has to be fixed anyway. I'll move the check to the tracesys branch, which is not a hot path, in the next RFC version, so this should not be a problem.
