You are right, of course, but then ASN Stephens is also right for reporting
a problem in the -ac patches. Or do you expect people to ignore bugs in the
-ac series and let bugs go unreported? How will the -ac series improve, and
ultimately, how will the official Linux kernel improve?

Granted, in this case, Alan already knew the problem. :-)

Cheers,
