Yes, that's exactly what I was hoping
for, thanks!
Even if no Windows apps do such a thing
(which wasn't confirmed yet), Wine may
still need that fix for the DOS support
in the future, and dosemu seems to be in
need of that fix already and for long
(that's where I am getting the use of it).
And we haven't heard a word for a VMWare
yet, and I think they may appreciate that
Also, since the first version of the path,
I've been contacted by a few people asking
me to provide an updated version for 2.6.9
and 2.6.10. I don't know the reason, but
I know it was used (I think they were more
concerned about an aforementioned "information
leak", rather than about the %esp corruption).
So if the last problem with that patch was
that it is not really needed, I think it
no longer stays:)
