:I understand this for bootloader, but why the same for kernel? Why not
:have all the help one can get? Having several layers of protection is
:good. I have problems with bootloader on few boxes, but never had any
:problems for the rest of the system (except fetch and some ftp sites).
I trust the stack protection code in GCC about as far as I can throw
my work desk. And since my work desk is attached to the wall of my
work room, that isn't very far.
