    Sounds like someone has been drinking the Chinese kool-aid. Acquiring a patent or hiring an inventor in the 1890's can hardly be compared with the state-sponsored hacking and IP theft we see coming out of the CCP today. China is a uniquely bad actor when it comes to Internet-age intellectual property theft. In fact, China and Russia are the only two nations in the world, where their governments have established laws granting them full 100% access by default, to any data stored in-country, personal, commercial, anything. As a Communist nation, all the largest businesses are effectively CCP owned and controlled. Whatever you decide to build or manufacture there, the CCP has access to all of it. Do you really think the CCP is going to allow any foreign competitor to maintain a competitive technology advantage, when the CCP can peek at their IP at any time?

      The reality is China is not uniquely bad actor. Biggest of the bad actors yes but methods not unique. You would not be looking at the examples of where the US/Uk/
      Russia/Australia... are doing the wrong thing. The USA media is doing very bias reporting on the ip theft issue .

      Its also important to be aware that USA has in the recent past with NSA been caught with hand in state-sponsored stealing of intellectual property.

      torsionbar28 its really easy to look at CCP doing all this stuff and say they are a uniquely bad actor so ignoring the fact the USA, Russia, UK, Australia.... in the past 50 years have been caught with state sponsored hacking and theft of intellectual property. China for what they are doing is not unique. The volume the China is doing is more but so is their population so not unique just is more because China has more population to-do it. China for what they are doing they were the copy cat criminal who has out done the party they copied now the party they copied is getting really upset.

      Its really simple to miss that the USA, Russia, Uk.... all set bad examples how China should behave to develop their industries quickly. We are not talking 100 years back setting these examples in the last 50 years its not the 1890s its the internet age where USA set the bad example. Remember USA state funded set a lot bad example in the internet age before china really had internet as in the early 1990s.

      Yes we want to kill this model off because if India copies china in future we will have equal big mess coming.

      Lot of ways we have to be thankful china is doing state-sponsored hacking and IP theft and have not followed the USA bad example completely to use computers as weapon of war and started targeted like USA power generation. Remember that was the result of Stuxnet in a few countries the USA hated.

      The reality we have a lot of bad government actors in the world they are not a single country problem. Larger the poplation of a country when they go bad actor the worse it is. If we really don't start generically dealing with these bad actor problems we are going to rinse and repeat the current china mess with India most likely in a few decades. We failed to learn from the USA and other prior ones.

        A lot of these MIPS platforms in practice are not vulnerable to Meltdown/Spectre. A lot of them are in order and have a static memory boundary between kernel and user space.

            I'm the author of the patch and the patch was meant to say Loongson 64C is not known to be affected by meltdown.....

              That's rather unfortunate given that many networking vendors use MIPS on their routers and switches (e.g. Ubiquiti), where security is pretty darn crucial.
