yep!!!!! :)

[well, according to ... never mind, you _already_ know that my logic
manipulation skills are an order of magnitude slower than anyone else's: i
make up for it with this nebulous skill called intuition...]

so, there _is_ a justification for keeping a user_struct, right, i.e. it's
required to fulfil certain purposes.

so, if there is a purpose for adding NET_USER_INFO_3 to user_struct, why
am i getting back-lash from jeremy telling me that it's not justified?
