SubjectRe: [PATCH] Consolidate include/asm/fcntl.h into include/linux/fcntl.h

I think this is a bad idea -- when doing a new port, it's easier to fill
in the bits with the current scheme rather than with your proposed scheme.
There is one part which I like:

-/* for old implementation of bsd flock () */
-#define F_EXLCK 4 /* or 3 */
-#define F_SHLCK 8 /* or 4 */

All of these can go, nobody's been using them since kernel 2.0. I took
out the last vestiges of them from locks.c earlier in 2.5. None of the
BSDs have them either.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
