SubjectRe: [2.5.43] (DAC960 compile failure)
Hi Dave,
I'll give it a shot tonight. Did you post the patch to the
linux-kernel mailing list? I can't find it in the archives. If not,
would you mail a copy to my home address (compuserve, or have you posted
it on a web location?) If you'd like me to put up copies of the patch
for general consumption I'll make space available on a web page.

Kevin
