I hope you don't mind my CC'ing lkml. I think may be useful information
for others, as well.

For submitting net driver changes via BK, I would request what I request
of others using BK (and what Marcelo requests of me):

Send me a separate email with an easily noticable subject, something
like "[BK] typhoon net driver fixes/updates/whatever", including the
output of Documentation/BK-usage/bk-make-sum. Typically this is done

cd typhoon-2.4
bk-make-sum ../linux-vanilla-2.4
vi /tmp/linus.txt (fix URL, or whatever)
email /tmp/linus.txt to me

then, additional email the broken-out GNU diffs for review. Here is an
example, though there are several other ways to do this:

cd typhoon-2.4
bk changes -L ../linux-vanilla-2.4 2>&1 | \
# edit /tmp/rev-*.patch, and email, one per email

bk-make-sum and csets-to-patches are shipped in Documentation/BK-usage
in both 2.4.x and 2.5.x.

And, unless the 2.4 and 2.5 patches are 100.0000% the same, send patches
for both 2.4 and 2.5.

This spams me with a lot of email, but really does optimize the
submission process, and gets your updates into the mainline kernel very
quickly. Ideally, I just have to do "read, read, read, cut-n-paste your
supplied bk pull URL"

Thanks and regards,


P.S. Nice work on the driver. Even if technical issues are found, it's
very clean and easy to review and debug.
