 Valdis - I did not know the source had gotten THAT big, still, will be
interesting to explore parts of it that interest me - the TCP stack for a
start... Also, thanks for the advice on the book :)

As of this morning, Linus's git tree had:

[/usr/src/linux] find * -type f | xargs cat | wc -l

and we're still at 3.2.0-rc2.  Almost certainly will tip over 15M by the
time Linus
lets 3.2.0 escape.  The linux-next tree (which will become 3.3) is already
sitting at
somewhere north of 15.3M lines of code.  Yes, we're averaging 100K lines
of code
a month.

15.3M lines of code != 15.3M lines of code in use on any one system !=
15.3M lines of code that can ever involve a security boundary.
