    Do you mean diffstat ? I added diffstat at the sos-api patch. .
    Are you referring to Documentation/Changes ? I am not sure I know what you mean.

    1. I posted to lkml as well as acpi. is this what you mean ?
    2. At first, I posted a big text file , but I got zero replies so i thought that maybe people refrain from reading so much.
    But I will fix it (I read SubmittingPatches).
