    At yet, I got four screenfuls of

    fs/xfs/XXXXX.c: warning: unused parameter 'foo'

    when I added -Wunused_parameter to Makefile.
    Clearly there is some room for improvement.

    Sent a few.
    I would like to ask you to ACK/NAK every individual patch
    in some reasonable period of time, say, 1-3 days. If you NAK a patch,
    please let me know what is wrong with it.

    I am not eager at all to experience a repeat of aic7xxx
    patch saga, when I was not getting any meaningful reply
    for months.

    Best regards, Denys.
