What don't you get?

I've said each time the PCMCIA ioctl removal topic came up that it would
give me this precise problem.  I've given details of _why_ it would cause
me that problem.  It's gone ahead inspite of that.

Concerning the pasic driver.  For fuck sake, why are you bringing that
up.  I made it *perfectly* and *crystal* clear that I *WAS* *NOT* in a
position to fix that thing - BECAUSE I WASN'T GOING TO BE IN FRONT OF A
COMPUTER FOR VERY LONG ON THOSE DAYS.  Which I knew would be the case on
Monday morning.  I _tried_ to stop the thing being merged, but Linus
merged it anyway, and then told me he'd done that _AFTER_ I'd gone to
bed on Monday.  I tried to ensure that I was in a position to cover
_all_ eventualities (except the one which actually occurred.)

So, between Monday midnight and Thursday morning, when do you expect me
to sort the resulting mess out, given that I was not even able to be
in front of a computer until about 10pm on Tuesday and Wednesday?

Oh, maybe you expect me to give up sleeping just for you?

What do you want me to do?  Quit because of it?
