Thank you for your detailed discussion of this in advance on the kernel
list, your careful consideration of the 2.2 compatibility work horrors you
introduced and the thoughtful way you notified maintainers.


1) All of this was done at the request of Linus.

2) You were CC:'d on every single email
that Linus and I had on these changes, and you
saw every single revision of the patch.

Why are you complaining now, please speak up earlier next time when
you have a grip. This is why you were CC:'d on the emails.

I am actually unhappy Linus waited until 2.4.9 final to put those
changes in as I was sure 1 or 2 compile issues would slip through.
I have been sending it over and over throughout the 2.4.9 prepatches.
