Yes, we kept sending (sigh).
Thanks to Alan, we'll hopefully make it soon into vanilla.

We never have send attachements.

That's exactly what we want to conform to.
It just takes a hole lot of time (several weeks now) to feed it into -ac.

And believe me, Alan is *very* helpful here but he can't work on just LVM
integration for sure.

Once we've got -ac updated, we'll try setting up a cron job to feed in the
small patches we are going to send to Alan/Linus ;-))
