No problem.

Looks OK, I'll give it a spin.

On an unrelated note, are there any known issues with using epoll
on relayfs file descriptors? I'm having a few troubles, and just
wondering if its me doing something silly, or if its known to not
work...? Symptoms of the problem are epoll continually reaching
its timeout with no modified fds found (when I know the inode has
modified trace buffers attached) ... and the epoll code is a bit
too hairy for me to go find a quick fix - seems like it should be
able to work though since relayfs has a ->poll implementation.
