    initial v1  
    55I'm getting the feeling that the code has "gone into the weeds". It makes no sense that it would take 130+ bytes of machine code to implement a two-line C function when it takes less than 60 bytes for stop_watching(), and reading the disassembly for stop_watching() makes sense to me (with some effort) whereas the disassembly for the purported user_stop_notifying() makes no sense at all; so that would support the "gone crazy" idea but maybe I'm missing something..

    7 If reg.IP has gone to the weeds then nothing can be trusted in the registers and the stack pointer ..etc and it will be very difficult to determine what went wrong from this KDL... and I'm fscked again, sigh.
