    Mauro,

    hopefully, a few days on linux-next can replace all what we had in the
    past, causing sometimes years of delay ...

    What to say ?

    OK, if you say we are fine with it now, it is up to you.

    So, the whole mistake was, that Linus did not start kicking asses harder
    earlier?

    What a total crap!

    Cheers,
    Hermann
