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.

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.

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