SubjectRe: Getting A Patch Into The Kernel
From
Date
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
you!
