SubjectRe: [patch 29/37] dvb-core: Proper handling ULE SNDU length of 0

Greg,

Can we hold off on this until the 2.6.17.13 review cycle? This patch
has not been sent to the linux-dvb mailing list, it has not been
reviewed or tested except for the Author and Marcel.

Please also add me to the cc list for the stable patches review.

DVB maintainers,

Marcel expressed some concerns about this patch on LKML, see thread:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/9/6/314

He says that the code in our mercurial tree, and in 2.6.18-rcX does this
in a much nicer way, but that it involves some major changes. If this
patch seems acceptable, then we can apply it for 2.6.17.y, and the
larger, more appropriate change will be seen when 2.6.18 gets released.

I, myself, do not know enough about the internals of dvb_net ... but I
think that we should agree to this patch before it gets applied to -stable

Regards,

Mike Krufky
