I don't believe it was documented, or even existed at the time I moved my
stuff. This machine, and 3 others here, running linuxcnc, are still
wheezy. One experimental install on a pi is running jessie. And I've not
had that problem with jessie. So its possible we could both be right.
One stretch install on an arm64, not doing anything of note except
building rt kernels is also working well.
