    He is.

    Besides, his patches were incorrect.

    In that case, please disable CONFIG_FB completely on the Intel platform, so I
    won't see any complaints about it anymore. And be sure 2.2 will support less
    platforms than 2.0. Other platforms rely on an up-to-date drivers/video.

    _I_ am used to getting other patches to make things work on my machines, but
    unfortunately other's aren't...

    Greetings,
