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.

Thanks,
mfm
