Yes, I would say so.  The ability to run it on non-Juniper hardware is
undocumented and unsupported to the degree that the functionality
probably rather would be removed than fixed to support something like

Yes, I have no reason to believe otherwise.  But still it does behave
sufficiently different from other BIOSes for low CPU count machines to
fail in this particular case.

I see this as another end of the discussion about whether Linux should
try to configure PC hardware in the same manner as Windows, as that is
the configuration which will be tested by hardware vendors.  Most OS
vendors will test their systems with the big proprietary BIOSes and not
with SeaBIOS.

Does that make sense?

It does, I wasn't sure if you're working on behalf of Juniper or not.

I guess the options are:
 - build time switch
 - run time switch, controlled by qemu via fwcfg
 - run time decision based on size
 - do nothing

error compiling committee.c: too many arguments to function
