methods will die an unused dusty death. pcvt was removed from the
kernel last weekend, and while i couldn't come up with any sound
reasons for it not to be (or problems with it being removed), i will
miss it. it fell into disuse, was unmaintained, and was excised. if
the kmem grovelling routines are not used, they'll start to be
unmaintained (since the sysctl stuff "works") and i'm afraid they'll
or am i just being pointelessly paranoid?
pcvt was removed because (a) it is a piece of sh*t and (b) we have
a far more versatile MI console driver now.
you are far, far too paranoid. go register another few atdotdotdot's. :)
