Subject[PATCH 2.5] converting drivers/net/wan/lmc/lmc_main.c from suser() to capable()
Hey Linus, Marcelo and the rest of you.

The code mentioned in the subject does not seem to have a maintainer. I sent the patch to those mentioned
in lmc_main.c, and from Andrew Stanley-Jones I got the following answer:

"I'm not sure it's really being maintained, but I was the last one to work
on it afaik. Feel free to apply it.
-Andrew"

So I guess, if the patch looks good, it is just for you to apply it ... it is against 2.5.1-pre5, but should
apply cleanly to 2.4 as well ...

== Morten
