SubjectRe: BSD-Linux FlameWar over SoftRAID.

Alan,

The real problem is that the header content is incomplete and wrong for
complete feature usage. I will write a signature header file for the
various flavors and document the ownership of the IP and the terms of
usage.

This should be an optimal solution.

I gather you are point to me as the 1% for the Linux KOOKs ;-)

Cheers,

Andre Hedrick
