Data Corruption reads a bit like "Imminent SuperNova in Your Area".. I'm
not really sure what it means for users & sysadmins. Given we've had the
original lazyfpu patches out for 11.x for a few months:
- what might data corruption entail?
- has this been observed in the wild?
Many thanks for the efforts into making these patches available.
