Uh, once again a coincidence I didn't get hurt. Security by coincidence
is much worse than security by obscurity :-)
It seems one really should be more paranoid when downloading sources.
MD5's published on the same server is of little use, but I think I'll
finally start checking PGP signatures now, when available. Why blindly
trust ftp.kernel.org, for a starter?
