Hello Maciej,

You are sick and twisted but your testing plan will certainly find bugs. :)
My only question is how to tell the bugs from one package to the other. :)

Thanks for all of the hard work.

 I do run IPv6 -- I get to my 32-bit box with SSH over IPv6 just to make
sure I'll find more bugs (the previous one was the multicast filter). ;-) 
I even have ipv6.o as a module (which also triggered bugs in the past). 
Will have to try with the 64-bit box. ;-)))

 But this bug I've actually spotted studying compiler's diagnostic output
-- a "Macro instruction expanded into multiple instructions in a branch
delay slot" warning isn't normal for a .c file.
