Especially if its the media asking.

It certainly would for there shalt be far more important questions to
ask him, under torture if necessary, and some serious analysis of that
dar "time portal".

I'm planning on doing the 4.1 update and rolling the KDE piece in to the
4.1.4 sru we aleady have pending. I'm wating to see the new kdebluetooth
in Jaunty and then I'll update the intrepid one based on that.

While this fix is only related to Xen, the story may be interesting/good to know
generally.

x86, binutils, xen: Fix another wrong size directive

The latest binutils (2.21.0.20110302/Ubuntu) breaks the build
yet another time, under CONFIG_XEN=y due to a .size directive that
refers to a slightly differently named (hence, to the now very
strict and unforgiving assembler, non-existent) symbol.

[ mingo:

This unnecessary build breakage caused by new binutils
version 2.21 gets escallated back several kernel releases spanning
several years of Linux history, affecting over 130,000 upstream
kernel commits (!), on CONFIG_XEN=y 64-bit kernels (i.e. essentially
affecting all major Linux distro kernel configs).

Git annotate tells us that this slight debug symbol code mismatch
bug has been introduced in 2008 in commit 3d75e1b8:

3d75e1b8 (Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-07-08 15:06:49 -0700 1231)
ENTRY(xen_do_hypervisor_callback) # do_hypervisor_callback(struct *pt_regs)

The 'bug' is just a slight assymetry in ENTRY()/END()
debug-symbols sequences, with lots of assembly code between the
ENTRY() and the END():

ENTRY(xen_do_hypervisor_callback) # do_hypervisor_callback(struct *pt_regs)
...
END(do_hypervisor_callback)

Human reviewers almost never catch such small mismatches, and binutils
never even warned about it either.

This new binutils version thus breaks the Xen build on all upstream kernels
since v2.6.27, out of the blue.

This makes a straightforward Git bisection of all 64-bit Xen-enabled kernels
impossible on such binutils, for a bisection window of over hundred
thousand historic commits. (!)

This is a major fail on the side of binutils and binutils needs to turn
this show-stopper build failure into a warning ASAP. ]
