Time. This is a very sensitive code layer and I know Volker wanted
some changes to the patch. Have you addressed these ?

Sometimes it takes a while for changes to get into the tree, I
have a patch pending from Miracle Linux that I've been needing
to review for a month - urgent bugs with 3.0.23 have taken

I'm in St. Louis this week, and at LinuxWorld SF next week, but
I'll look at it after that. In the meantime I think Volker has
worked closest on this code, and I saw his objections to the
patch which weren't answered.

This is a 3.0.24 or later patch anyway, so there's no urgency
to get this in - I'd rather have it right than fast.
