Depends on your definition of vaporware.  If "doing 90% of the
work and then refusing to release the code because he never quite
finishes any fucking project and is embarrased by his code" qualifies,
then yes, it is vaporware. This guy has a history of doing exactly
this, and it is extremely frustrating.  Also, he absolutely refuses to
provide the patch if you ask him directly.

That is indeed onion's site.

Yes, I have tested this kernel and it does indeed work.  Again though,
no code...

No, it won't.  If there isn't a patch on onion's site, then there isn't
a patch anywhere (unless by chance somebody else independently wrote a
patch and then never bothered to announce it to the linux-mips
community).
