Note that this feature on Mono caused problems when a Mono binary built
on a 2.6 kernel (by my friendly neighborhood Debian packager) was
deployed on an older kernel (like mine). Mono added a
--enable-sigaltstack=no (IIRC) option that distributors are supposed to
use to cope with this.
(In Mono's case, the end result was that you got segfaults instead of
NullPointerExceptions, which is bad ;) )
Is this same thing going to happen to Kaffe, and if so, would a similar
solution be in order?
