SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] uio: Prefer MSI(X) interrupts in PCI drivers
Date
Hi Greg,

so somehow this discussion stopped without any instructions how to proceed.
I think this kind of driver helps every FPGA developer to interface his design via PCIe to a Linux PC.
So if there is any chance to get this code merged, I'm glad to rebase this onto the latest kernel release.

Best regards,
Manuel Stahl
