You are right, in that situation it still does produces interesting content.
Btw are you thinking of bumping it to 0.34 as that has been released or
are you waiting for the newer kernel 3.16 to arrive before you release
the new one.


I do see you did do an interim release on the git repo. but haven't
really released 0.33-1.

It does seem the vulnerabilities will be around for sometime. I did
read that newer chips will have few changes come in for
branch-prediction and stuff but those who got old chips, we will
either have to take a huge performance cut or go buy new chips. Of
course Intel benefits from taking no action then and now and simply
will sell more new chips
