I'd be really interested in the tools he's using to make Linux crash (i.e.
remote kernel panic and/or 100% lock-up). Whenever I ran across
anything that I could classify as a reproducable crash (and believe me, in
the early pre-1.0 days it wasn't all that hard), I'd get ahold of the
proper maintainer(s) and a fix would be out within a fortnight.
For a while, I had a system running "crashme"
during the day while I was at school/work. Kinda neet if you need to
test your program against a million virtual monkeys... :)
