    Phillip,

    Patch 3/7 fails with a
    drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/hal/phydm_precomp.h: already exists in error:
    working directory. When I deleted the file, the patch applied.

    Patch 5/7 fails with a drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/include/hal_data.h: already
    exists in working directory. Again it applied when I manually deleted that file.

    Patches 2-6 all have trailing whitespace warnings.

    I have started testing. Unfortunately, my GitHub version has a fault in that it
    runs systemd-udevd at 100% of a CPU. So far, I have found that an older commit
    works fine. As soon as I find the fault, I will let you know.

    Larry
