11:44Matviy: Hello! I'm reading a book on the Linux kernel on x86 and it mentions that while syscalls (int 128) are implemented as user-mode accessible trap gates (interrupts are left on), int 3 is a user-mode accessible interrupt gates.
11:44Matviy: Is there a reason that int 3's are handled via interrupt gates?
22:34zf: oh dear, is fd.o down?
22:34imirkin_: www.fd.o loads for me
22:34zf: nope, never mind
22:34zf: it was refusing to load just a second ago...
22:34imirkin_: uh huh
22:35imirkin_: we believe you...
22:35imirkin_: also, in the future, i think sysadmins tend to hang out in #freedesktop
22:35imirkin_: although there's a good amount of overlap, i suspect
22:38zf: eh, yeah, I was just already here
