It's the middle of the merge window, with major security things
happening at the same time, my ability to be persistant and annoyed at
minor things like this is very low...

Anyway, the patch series is long gone from my queue, you will have to
resend them please. But first, I want to see an Intel lawyer's
signed-off-by on them when you do resend them as the last time I talked
to them, they said they were not going to be doing dual-licensed kernel
code anymore for a whole bunch of reasons I don't want to get into on a
public mailing list.

So go verify this please, and get their approval before resending.

thanks,

greg k-h
