OK, I have just posted the ramster v5 patchset which applies against
linux-3.2. I've test-built it against linux-next... it only gets
the normal minor merge conflicts for adding a line to
drivers/staging/Makefile and Kconfig.

Sorry again for the inconvenience. At least V5 has some nice
improvements over V4, see: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/2/14/396

Thanks,
Dan
