Is there anyone home ?

Think like a business end user

"We updated the kernel it broke"
"Our app isnt certified with the new glibc"
"Why do we have to change two components at a time - how will we test it"

At the moment I repeat - I can run any app back to libc 2.2 on a 2.4.x
kernel. Thats back to the days of Linux 0.98 or so. 

I concur we should consider hard if we want to document the internals of
/proc/cpuinfo except when needed (eg mips cache stuff)
