It's ok, I already have enough data. It currently takes about two hours to run them all through (through nine VRAM sizes), though I last night invented a solution that may speed the simulation up further.

If you have some extreme case (like Reaction Quake was before), I would want that, but otherwise no need.

AFAIK no distro carried the patches, Ubuntu+oibaf ppa was the easiest setup. It's no longer in the ppa, but you can manually install the packages via a web browser.
