Let see how the popcon will increase. ;-)

Speaking about non-deterministic, do you know why

?  Just by curiosity.

Wow, the diversity of architectures increases. ;-)

Let’s dream to Diverse Double Compilation at the kernel level using
cross-compilation with Hurd and kFreeBSD. :-)  At each step, using a DDC

CrossCompil(linux on Hurd)     = Linux-H
CrossCompil(linux on kFreeBSD) = Linux-F

Compil(linux on Linux-H)  = Linux-X
Compil(linux on Linux-F)  = Linux-Y

Compil(linux on Linux-X)  = Linux-A
Compil(linux on Linux-Y)  = Linux-B

if Linux-A == Linux-B then ok else ko. :-)

Somehow. ;-)
