    No-one is saying that this driver should not be mainlined before it
    has LE support. All that I said was:

    The alternative would be to explicitly state in Kconfig that LE arm
    is broken with this driver, so that this could be fixed later.

    Please can we not blow this out of proportion, it really isn't that
    big a deal. The irony is that fixing Krzysztof's driver to work on LE
    will probably be quite easy, given that we already have a working LE
    driver from Christian.


    PS: It really isn't just 'a few folks' - at NSLU2-Linux we have 5000
    people who have downloaded Debian/LE for NSLU2 and are currently
    using Christian's driver with great success. We would just like to
    replicate that support with this new driver.
