    So it sounds like Arnd knows what the distros have.

    Because I think that would actually be the best way to try to
    determine where we want to go, because it's what is going to determine
    what is most problematic for _users_.

    If no distro is on 4.5, then there's no reason to pick that. The
    reason I mentioned 4.5 is because that's the "asm goto" point, afaik,
    and that is likely to be a requirement in the near future.

    If SLES11 is 4.3, that's obviously a concern. Although Arnd seemed to
    imply that that had already caused problems, so...
