AFAIK, it works on everything except multi-processor Intel Pentiums,
which require an additional patch.
>What's the performance impact of the fix???
On Intel Pentiums: about 50 cycles handling traps like "invalid
opcode" i.e., damn close to nil.
On anything else: nil.
There's a BSDI fix too but it does have a performance hit.
>P.S. one *could* argue that a fix is much more urgent in Unix
More urgent than systems with Active X? The Web is already awash with
hacks to bring those to a halt. Now irretrievable crashes are nearer
than ever: just a click away!
Joy of joys.
