    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;

    Greetings Michael.
