I'm not so sure it is "many" any more - I run with exactly that environment
a lot, so I notice most of what doesn't work, and these days, it isn't much
(and nothing that ever bothers me any more - netstat used to, but that's
fixed, or fixed for everything that matters.)

Certainly kmem grovellers aren't going to keep working, but these days there
are very few of those left, and over time the number has been decreasing,
which is the way it should be.
