I did mention DMA abstraction in LKML in 1999 or even earlier.....
It is a long time since then.

You need to distinct between boot licking people and people who know what
they are talking about. It seems that you are missing the needed discussion
stile in order to be able to discuss things with people that are not of your
opinion. I _am_ able to do this and it was alway you to come up with personal
insultings, altough I know that even pure technical discussions may be very

Note that you did always block when I asked you for giving technical arguments.

At last: I am always open to people wo have the needed discussion style and the
technical background to talk about things, but I don't like the kind of
discussions I am always thrown into on LKML because they start with bashing me.
