As far as I've understood what happened during the 27C3 talk about
this (no URL, sorry I am writing offline), and especially the
discussion that arose between the speaker and one of the attendants in
the second part of the talk, it seems everyone there -including the
speaker- realized during the talk that the proposed solution was
flawed from the roots and just can't work, at least with x86 hardware.
