Subject[PATCH] Re: Linux 2.2.15pre14 minor issues
Hi, everybody.

I have two minor fixes I sent you in against 2.2.15pre13, they are still
pending for 2.2.15pre14, so I'm resending these.

They are:

1) fix drivers/char/ so that the MSP3400 module can actually be
configured (currently assumes MSP3400 is only found on BT848-style
cards, if that's not sure, it needs changing)

2) fix compile date in kernel tag line to be of C locale rather than
current user's locale (cosmetic, obviously correct).

Patches are attached below and can otherwise along with PGP-signed
MD5sum checks be found at:

This is meant to allow for the MSP 3400 chip driver for v4l to be built.
To be applied against 2.2.15pre13
