Who considers it insecure and where is it documented then I'll go and
have a look at the issue. I keep hearing indirect references to this but
nobody ever answering in detail.

BTW: the SiS DRM is also insecure - the memory manager can be used to
crash the box. Just feed it random crap in a tight loop and wait. If you
use sisfb however it seems ok - that uses a different memory handler.
