I already pointed out that none of the Debian kernels ever enabled it, and even if it did, you'd have to use a tool that specifically used it. Sit tight and find something else to worry about--maybe a solar flare that'll wipe out our infrastructure.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10.6, Pale Moon 28.0.1, wine-staging 3.15, qBittorrent 4.1.2, Linux kernel 4.18.6, virtualbox 5.2.18

not sure what to say to this.
i cannot be aware of every kernel flag or other detail in the code; i trust both kernel devs and distro maintainers to do The Right Thing.

edit:
just noticed that stevepusser already said something very similar.

When is the solar flare happening? :shock: :?

don't worry about solar flares, worry about butterflies (or emacs)!
