Haha, I didn't even go down to this patch after reading 0/N. I knew
right there that it's going to be pointless shite.

But now that you point me to it, it's even worse. It's not only
pointless shite it's actively wrong and outright stupid for someone
who tries to "work" on this code for a couple of month now.

Viresh, I'm really tired of this. Stop touching code you do not
understand. I warned you more than once and now you really reached the
level of complete incompetence. Welcome to my killfile.

Thanks,

tglx
