    Heh, well hopefully not all the patches you receive. But there would have been
    feedback sooner on this patch stating something along the lines of what I
    said. The list is much lower volume making it is easier for devs doing cleanup,
    like myself, to follow, so as to not duplicate our efforts. IMHO anyway.

    While I have your attention, I am changing all makefiles to use the newer kbuild
    flag variables, such as ccflags-y, asflags-y, and ldflags-y. I have already
    completed this for all directories in the kernel except drivers which is
    next. The patches are trivial but there are a lot in drivers, so should I break
    it down by driver or is subdirectory okay? media/video has 85 instances in
    something like 12 different subdirectories, so I am not sure what is
    best. Please let me know what is best.
