    Ok, I was wrong. I'm used to perl, I've seen perl on every Linux
    installation and on almost every Unix installation I've been working
    with.

    I can be done in sh, surely. I only tried to promote my perl version
    because I've done it in perl and nobody told me earlier that perl is not
    liked in the kernel tree - and I've seen some perl scripts there.

    I guess I'll have to convert the script to sh.
