Hi,

Can people stop patching these files for a while.

When Dalecki's stuff was ripped out, a set of important fixes were also
reverted in both of these drivers. The end result is that my present
2.5.34 drivers are completely different from the 2.5.34 drivers in Linus'
tree.

I'd prefer these drivers to lag behind and I'll pick up the changes OR
copy me on the changes to these files please. I don't mind which.

For the present, I've now got to work out exactly what changed between
.34 and .40 and apply those changes to some completely different versions
of these drivers.

Same goes for 2.4 as well unfortunately.

Thanks.

Its much harder for me not to propogate stuff to one specific driver.
I'd much rather you simply ignored the new driver if this is a problem
then resync when ready.

Your best bet is probably to look at the diff between 2.4.19 and
2.4.20pre8-ac in terms of changes to the drivers themselves. The file
moving means you want to diff the two by hand but the changes should be
clear enough. If not drop me a note
