They are. We release without warnings.

These are all valid regressions. Sure, its in a single bug (which I asked it to be separated out), but still they are regressions.

Its still a regression. The problem itself may not be Linux specific, but it was only found on Linux on that test case.

It was declared a release blocker.

Darwin is currently compiling without warnings or errors. It also has no regressions in the test-suite or dejagnu test suite for both clang and llvm-gcc. So by our release criteria, it is currently the only platform that is regression free. I'd like Linux to be ready to release too, but if no one is helping fix bugs, then there isnt much I can do about it.

Please help fix what you can.
