Christ people.

I already reported that it DOES NOT EVEN COMPILE. See the other thread
here on lkml ("Re: 3.8-rc2: EFI framebuffer lock inversion...").

Alan apparently doesn't care about the patch he wrote to even bother
fixing that, and the only person who does seem to care enough to carry
two fixes around (Andrew) apparently doesn't feel that he's
comfortable forwarding it to me (he's been sending other patches, so
it's not like Andrew is offline either)..

I'm not picking up random patches from people who don't care enough
about those patches to even bother fixing compile errors when
reportyed and didn't even send them to me to begin with.

So I'm trusting that Andrew is right, and is waiting for something.

Linus
