SubjectRe: [linux-dvb] Re: Critical points about kernel 2.6.21 and pseudo-authorities
Manu, also for you please stop it, we know that Uwe writes abusive
stuff but you don't have to go on with it.

It's about the patch Trent wrote if you're not able to discuss it wait
for others to comment it.
I only saw subjective reasons why you are against it, but the actual
patch doesn't cross your development there.
