    Hi Greg.

    This shouldn't break - I tested against 2.6.33-rc3, and I just retested
    against 2.6.33-rc4. The origin of the patch is in -rt but there is nothing
    -rt about it which is why I would like to push it upstream.

    I don't have all that hardware, so my ability to test it is somewhat
    limited - and since these are all staging drivers, I was hoping that you
    would pick it up if Thomas doesn't have any objections.

    Thanks

    John
