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.

Thanks, these are great. 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 ...


   modprobe -i -r ...

? Or should we check for and reject "--remove --ignore-install"? Or is the code just ugly in some respect?
