IMO, rump is fragile and not only regularly breaks the build, but changes made
for the benefit of rump break kernels. It appears to be useful technology,
but there is, again IMO, just too much avoidable fallout.
If the "inventive use of" __start/_stop symbols was documented maybe I would
have spotted it sooner. I admit that it took me a while to understand what
was going on and, yes, I still think it is "inventive".

I'm glad you agree that link sets are ugly. On the matter of a getting rid of
them I did offer to discuss a solution on ICB, but was ignored.
