So I am forced to sign-off random patches people send to me?
I explained why I do not. If you do not like that, please do sign it off.
If you do think the patch is correct, please _do_ sign it off Ingo.

This problem will fix itself by switching to b43 and dropping bcm43xx.
_That_ is my way to fix the bug.
I don't understand all the SELECT implications, so I'm not going
to introduce more of them. Because if the next regression appears from
I SELECT that I signed off
goto blah;
