Er, yes. (After my six red bulls at the Blackthorn party, I've gone cold
turkey on caffeine for a bit to detox. I'm surprised I'm still upright.)

I cc'd the arm list, which he's on. Low enough traffic I expected him to get
it soonish, but I can cc: him directly if you like.

Sorry, that's from my quick grab of the web page above.

I expect this to come through the proper arm channels rather than mine, the
attach was just to be specific about the patch I was talking about.

That's what the patch looked like when I got it. :)

I'm just an intrested party who's been trying to fix this particular problem
on my own (without success) for a couple months now. I hadn't been able to
upgrade Firmware Linux past 2.6.20 because ARM doesn't work on the newer
stuff, and it still doesn't work on 2.6.22-rc7 without this fix.

I found the fix yesterday, and would really really like it not to miss the
actual release. This was my attempt to make puppy eyes at subsystem
maintainers and add a signed-off-by to a small fix that unblocks a project
I'm working on. :)
