SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 2/2] PCI: iproc: Add outbound configuration for 32-bit I/O region
Hi Lorenzo,

I am sorry, I took your long time. In my commit log I gave details
about purpose of feature instead of implementation.
Thanks a lot for all inputs and knowledge. I will remember and follow
these notes while writing commit log.
commit log re-written by you is very much impressive and have detailed
description of feature and implementation.

Thank again for you patience.

Regards,
Srinath.
