Given that Linus is the one who introduced the fuckups in the first place,
and afaics Linus' series has not been posted anywhere I can see, and I
have been through the issues and worked with Ulf to get them fixed, I find
that to be down right insulting by you.

You received *BOTH* of Ulf's patches on the 5th October.  Both needed
to be applied *TOGETHER* to reduce the window where things got worse
before they got better.  But for some goddamned unknown reason you decided
to only take the first but totally and utterly ignored the second.

Well done, you've probably crapped this driver up again.  Way to go Mark.
Now, tell us _exactly_ what patches you've applied to this driver.  Post
them to this mailing list so we can see them, and see what state this
driver is now in.

IMHO, you're being a terrible "maintainer" here - and this is being shown
by the need to get you to post all the patches you've currently queued up
for this.
