No, That is NOT OK! That's nothing but a joke, and if it is a joke : )
it hits well in Mister Buesches direction. In so far it's
well-done : ) : ) : )

To be honest:

I expect at least TWO explained cases:

A. The case in which the b44 module is a PCI module (onboard, additional PCI
card etc.).

B. At least one well described case in which the b44 module is a bus
independent one.

Apart from that, it is Michael's task to explain the what and why, not mine
and not yours! It is him that wants his stuff being pulled into mainline, and
in so far he very well can do the "dirty work" of documentation, explanation.

But the issue is: He is not ready to DO that! Only if it fires back!

Cheers

Uwe
