I've used "--enable-kernel=current" for at least 2 years and never had a
problem with it. There used to be a warning in the book about it, but it was
based on misconceptions and was thus removed. Ulrich Drepper even recommends
using it and he should know what he's talking about.

I'll make an optional note in the hint. Thanks.
