Hmm, yours is small enough to do that.

BUT: _PLEASE_ use diff -u to generate a useable diff with context!

Stuff like

> diff -r linux/fs/binfmt_aout.c /mnt/linux-2.0.22/fs/binfmt_aout.c
> 35a36,39
> > #ifdef BINFMT_NAMES
> > #define AOUT_BINFMT_NAME "aout"
> > #endif
> >

is _nonsense_ because if I added two lines in the beginning of that file in
my personal kernel, the patch will be misapplied. Not good.

Oh yes, and say ":%g/^Only/d <Return>" (assuming you're using vi), which
deletes the superfluous "Only in foo: bar" lines.

Weed's Axiom:
Never ask two questions in a business letter.
The reply will discuss the one in which you are
least interested and say nothing about the other.
