    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:

    Hi! I'm the infamous .signature virus!
    Copy me into your ~/.signature to help me spread!
    This is meant to allow for the MSP 3400 chip driver for v4l to be built.
    To be applied against 2.2.15pre13
