Microsoft's ill-chosen magic constants
'Paolo Bonzini noticed something a little awkward in the Linux kernel support code for Microsoft's HyperV virtualisation environment - specifically, that the magic constant passed through to the hypervisor was "0xB16B00B5", or, in English, "BIG BOOBS". It turns out that this isn't an exception - when the code was originally submitted it also contained "0x0B00B135".' me, I prefer my magic constants less offensive and more Subgenius-oriented: "0xB0BD0BB5"
