SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/5] Enable Drivers for Intel MIC X100 Coprocessors.
Hi!

Interesting...

So... there are basically separate computers running on PCIe card
plugged into host computer, right?

Maybe we should have something more promintent than drivers/misc for
this, then? Like drivers/multicomputer?
