SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] psi: get poll_work to run when calling poll syscall next time
From
Date
Hi all,

According to the reviews from Johoannes, I've changed the old patch and
then submitted the version 2 patch a few days ago.

Please let me know if all this sounds good, or if there are any issues.

Thanks,
Jason
