Yeah, so I heard :)
Right, so this is clearly .36 merge window material - I just thought I
should get it out as early as possible so that it gets tested.
And by the way, how about a tag which says which kernel is the patch
aimed at so that maintainers know what should go where. I mean, with
those gazillion patches on lkml one doesn't always know which is
regression, which is a new feature but should go in earlier so that it
catches the next merge window etc? I.e., something like:
or for regressions
and maybe even a bug info
I'm afraid this is starting to sound like Ingo's Impact: tag, at least
semantically, which didn't get accepted. Hmm, anyway, I'll try adding
such an information in later patches.
