Some very useless statistics

Just in case you want to impress anybody with some useless statistics
about the Linux kernel...

As of 2.0.25, there are 782 *.c files, 835 *.h files and 109 *.S files
in a total of 122 directories. These contain a total number of 234663
semicolons, 741201 lines, 79552 comments, 9930 #include and 36232
#define statements.

Any guesses when the code size will be up to a million lines? :-)
