SubjectApologies (Re: This doesn't belong in 2.0.x !!!)
	I realize that I responded a bit prematurely after downloading the new
kernel. I knew I should have let myself calm down before bashing
Linus and Hannu (you guys are doing a GREAT job, BTW, so don't feel
too guilty about the semicolon bug). It's just that I don't like to
see stuff like this happen in 2.0.x, that's all. I realize that we're
all human and we make mistakes from time to time. Hell, I make
mistakes *ALL* the time (by flaming others prematurely, that is).
Apologies for the mess.
