SubjectRe: [PATCH] Add ENOSYS into sys_io_cancel
Hello Wendy,

Two things: your patch needs to be properly signed off on. Read
Documentation/SubmittingPatches for a description of what that entials.
Secondly, your patch adds whitespace on the end of the else. Aside
from that, the printk should be removed -- just replace it with the
ret = -ENOSYS.

Also, please cc linux-aio@kvack.org on future aio patches. Cheers,

-ben
