I want made a patch from last stable version by Heinz. The code from andrea
is really unstable and a "pre-release".
If you you are look into tho code (Do you do that ?) you see that's are
snapshots for SuSE (only SuSE) or new code.
I think we should use only stable code for a stable kernel. Yes of course I
can use this code but then I have a new version and not a patch. A patch is
only stable a code who  I desgin for the last stable kernel. Heinz ask me if
i want write allso a version with new code from andrea. That's looks
interesting :-) Write patches are my hobby not my work. Well, if i have time
I want to write a new version and then a new patch.
