if you don't use analogies if you use "Bit" it just doesn’t mater the PLACE of the bits doesn’t matter because they are there anyway!
in other words you just use rhetorical tricks to don't admit my argument.
after this "Fix" the linux kernel is 10x larger really who cares? no one cares !
the bit size of the kernel source doesn't care!
the bits are in the system anyway!
you save ZERO!
if he say no then its no.. but your speculations is just FUD!
you can also work to get a long time run.
over long time this is the best way to fix the linux fragmentation.
