    It's never safe to assume. Upstream does whatever they feel like, including using hacked together custom makefiles which don't repsect your CFLAGS anyway. This is the challenge of packaging for...

    Frankly I'm shocked that all those added drivers and capabilities only blew up the code by a little over double between 2.6 and 3.0. We're talking like numerous additional filesystems, network...
