Subjectmkdep.c cosmetic patch
Linus,
Here is a (mostly cosmetic) patch for you... I have found your mkdep.c
so useful, I have already stolen it, and am using it in another project
I am working on. :-) I think adding something like the following patch
will help make sure credit is given where credit is due. After all, I
expect there are probably lots of other people who will steal this
program and use it for other things. Lets make sure that you get the
appropriate glory...
-Erik
