I just took a look at the patch, and it is really horrible. I can't
send stuff like that to Linus. It is bloated, verbose, repetitive and
badly formatted. It really doesn't inspire confidence to see comments
like "Generated by GUI" or to see 16 variations of a large structure
with just slightly different fields at the end.
I also don't like having a config option to select whether to use one
internal kernel API or another. How am I supposed to know which one
Also, Ben tells me that the IDE driver doesn't even work, and the
interrupt controller code has major bugs.
