SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/2] of: dynamic: restrict overlay by targets
From
Date
Hi Alan,

In the RFC thread "of: Add whitelist", I did not understand the use case and
asked you some questions (30 Nov 2017 07:46:36 -0500), that you seem to have
overlooked (or my mail server failed to deliver your answer to me). Can you
please answer that question so I can better understand this patch set is
needed for.

Thanks,

Frank
