Thanks. In case Linus applied the patch this is unimportant.

Once you rip that out the special casing disappears automatically.
It describes current reality.

People tell me jari-loop is much faster at present.
If this is true, your move would not be very popular.

Anyway, I am not doing a redesign. Just a cleanup.
