Linus Torvalds pens vintage 'f*cking' rant at kernel dev's 'utter BS'

It is possible that Linus is wrong, he openly admits such possibility from time to time (although examples are hard to find).

The problem here is not not whether or not Linus is wrong, it is "how do we get a problem debugged if user machine got killed rather than diagnose it". There very likely is actual bug there, but in the context of actually running Linux kernel with bugs, it is not acceptable for Linux to kill the user machine rather than diagnose it. He's been ranting about it for years, so not surprised at all when he blows the fuse.
