    No idea about that, but every time somebody reports problems with
    the AIC7XXX driver with either in all uppercase, or lowercase
    name in message subject, a dozen or so linux-kernel recipient systems
    do react adversely with something like "keep your spam".

    For number wildcarding, "N" is usable in some cases.
    e.g. 3w-9nnn

    I do urge you to consider rewriting configuration options, and file
    names so that triple-x doesn't appear in them.

    Both for 2.4 and 2.6 kernels, as well.
