SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] ptp: fix an IS_ERR() vs NULL check
Hi Greg,

I meant to CC you but I screwed up and added you to the From header
instead... :(

Why did you commit 3b1ad360acad ("pps: using ERR_PTR instead of NULL
while pps_register_source fails")? You're not listed as a maintainer so
I wouldn't have known to CC you.

The back story is that the last chunk which changes drivers/ptp/ptp_clock.c
was dropped by mistake and it's not there in linux-next. I wrote a
patch which adds it, but everyone is super confused now... Here is
YueHaibing's original patch btw, for reference.

regards,
dan carpenter
