Well, mostly I didn't like the entangling of two different features, so we look for the presence of one by checking for the other. That's confusing going forward as well as awkward for backporting. Plus if we have a difficulty with detection of new kernel features like this we're probably going to run into it again in the future, so we might as well sort it out now... thanks -- PMM
