Just to clarify.

The ONLY message from the IrDA people I've gotten during the last few
weeks has been a SINGLE email from Dag Brattli, with a 330kB patch.

The whole, full, unabridged explanation for those 330kB of patches:

>> Hello Linus,
>> Here is the latest IrDA patch for Linux-2.4.0-test10.
>> Short summary:
>> o Fixes IrDA in 2.4
>> o Touches _no_ other files.
>> Please apply!
>> Best regards
>> Dag Brattli

That's it.

ONE message during the last month. ONE huge patch. From people who should
have known about 2.4.x being pending for some time.

10,000+ lines of diff, with _no_ effort to split it up, or explain it with
anything but

"o Fixes IrDA in 2.4"

and these people expect me to reply, sending long explanations of why I
don't like them? After they did nothing of the sort for the code they
claim should have been applied? Nada.

Get a grip.
