And most of them have been changed since. Zlib remains high on the
list, but those paths are from /lib/inflate.c, during bootup.

What remains to be analysed is the recursions. If someone seriously

fully automated, so it will take me a weekend (and this weekend is
scheduled for a party).

system are those that aren't there.
