Hi Henk,

I hadn't heard from you for a while about the signed-off-by line, but
I really needed to get those changes queued because the 2.6.30 merge
window is open now, and some of my patches depend on it.  I ended up
rewriting your patch from scratch, testing it and posting it last

I would really like to stick with the rewritten version since it is a
little tighter, and it is the one I've got tested.  However, now that
I've heard from you, I'm happy to change the patch author credit to
you.  You should look on the list for the patches I sent out last
night (labeled [PATCH 02/14] and [PATCH 03/14]) and reply to each of
them with an "Acked-by:" line if they look good to you.
