So in the past Ubuntu packaged PA in a way that, let's say, was not exactly optimal. I thought they'd gotten around fixing things since then. Turns out they didn't. Seems in their upcoming release they again did some genius thing to make PA on Ubuntu perform worse than it could. The Ubuntu kernel contains all kind of closed-source and other crap to no limits, but backporting a tiny patch that is blessed and merged upstream and in Fedora for ages, that they won't do. Gah.
Madness. Not good, Ubuntu, really not good! And I'll get all the complaints for this f**up again. Thanks!
/me is disappointed. Ubuntu, you really can do better than this.
