SubjectRe: Getting A Patch Into The Kernel
Hi, this is the correct forum.  You can submit the patch here.  Merely
paste the patch output inline into your email, and make your subject
"[PATCH] 2.4.5 FastTrak RAID Whatever Fix" and explain in the email.

Note your code must become GPL licensed.

I would suggest making the patch against the latest kernel, 2.4.5 -- or
even better, 2.4.5-ac13 or 2.4.6-pre2.

I suggest reading linux/Documentation/SubmittingPatches for coding
standards, etc.

It is good to see manufactures supporting their products in Linux, thank

Robert M. Love
