Hi Alan, Thanks for your patches. As I mentioned below, I'm pulling everything but the rename removal (for reasons explained). There is a pre2 version of 3.12 in git and I made tarballs last week, but I am waiting until pre3 this week before I make an announcement. Then the final 3.12 should just be exactly the same if nothing horrible comes up in testing.

I guess a markup validator would be handy. Are you building the SGML with different flags, tools, or did I miss it?
I've been using the debian package "docbook-to-man" (via the Makefile, no custom flags). It's always been a bit noisy, and the errors didn't stop it from generating the manpages.
On the softdep front, I think it's also worth fixing the ignore flags to actually offer a choice of ignoring install *or* remove but not both. The current implementation doesn't do what might be apparent.
Not sure what you have in mind here. Do we want something that's not covered by
modprobe -i ... and modprobe -i -r ...? Or should we check for and reject "--remove --ignore-install"? Or is the code just ugly in some respect?
