    Subject[PATCH 11/26] kbuild: patch to Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt
    Date
    From
    From: Brian Strand <bstrand@switchmanagement.com>
    Date: 1132622588 +0000

    First off, thanks for the kbuild docs, they are very useful! Second,
    I've attached a patch to modules.txt (from 2.6.14.2) with a "compile"
    fix to a Makefile example, and some trivial spelling/grammar nits.
    Please let me know if you want the patch in some other format (eg not
    MIME), or if I should go bother someone else about it.

    Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
