OK, I have no objection, but please apply the fixes the le16 problem as suggested by Pete and Greg first. Also, you will probably receive more comments, and/or criticisms from further reviews. This is normal and expected. You just have to fix your code so that it can be merged. > adutux is a simple Linux device driver for ADU boards from Ontrak Control Systems. > The adutux driver exposes standard open/close/read/write API's to the user application. If this is going to be the commit message, please reduce lines to less than 70 chars, and also enumerate the supportd devices and the one you performed the tests with. It helps a lot when users encounter problems. Also, if you did not (I forgot to check), please ensure that the adutux maintainer in 2.6 is CC'd. Last but not least, please remove the "KERNELS/" path component from your next diff.
