SubjectRe: (patch-2.4.6) Fix oops with Iomega Clik! (ide-floppy)

That just generates work for the glibc folks when they are working

Can't we just do something like:


/* KERNEL_PRIVATE_BEGIN: blah */

struct internal organs(int foo, char *bar);

/* KERNEL_PRIVATE_END */

sort of thing? That way glibc people can use sed to eliminate bogons
and confilcts and they can also submit patches for areas of overlap
the kernel people miss --- without fear of breaking the kernel?

Seems win-win to me and stops glibc and kernel developers from having
to trip over people and will allow us to eliminate all the rediculous
numbers of __KERNEL__ checks.
