Steven Rostedt on x64 kernel + x86 userspace
« on: June 21, 2012, 09:18:07 AM »

Not to mention that I would love to make all users that have x86_64
machines running i386 kernels, for something other than testing i386,
thrown into a large boiling pot of clue stew. It really pisses me off
when people run these i386 machines with 16 gigs of memory and complain
about performance. highmem should be disabled for any x86_64 box with
more than 1G of RAM running an i386 kernel with a nasty message on boot

"Idiot! Why the f*ck are you running i386 on your nice shiny new x86_64
machine, with Umpteen Gigs of RAM. Boot a x86_64 kernel for Christ sake
and get your full potential. Your i386 userspace will still work just
fine on it. You're like one of those 75 year old retirees that can
finally buy a Porsche just to drive it 10 miles per hour below the speed
limit with a line of cars behind them!"
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
