SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] scsi: st: convert convert get_user_pages() --> pin_user_pages()
From
Date
For some reason, the "convert convert" subject line is really hard to get rid of
from my scsi st patch. In this case, I'd dropped the patch entirely,
and recreated it with the old subject line somehow. Sorry about that
persistent typo!

I'll send a v3 if necessary, to correct that.

thanks,
John Hubbard
