I agree that just disabling the JITter is not an option. If someone improves 
the jitter, or making jitting optional for these architectures, we can look 
into it again. Until a patch shows up that does that, I'm going to mark this 
wontfix from the qt side of things.

I didn’t stop pretending when I became an adult, it’s just that when I was a 
kid I was pretending that I fit into the rules and structures of this world. 
And now that I’m an adult, I pretend that those rules and structures exist.
