Sorry but I've argued it like 4 times already, I've been having this
diff sitting here for months, I've done it because I was told that
instead of fixing usb-wacom it should be merged, I've read so many git
manpages I have a headache, I spent last night trying to dig the overly
cryptic zlib code to see why it would crash the Haiku m68k floppy
loader, the time I spend on qemu stuff isn't spent on the projects for
which qemu is supposed to be a dev tool, I'm overdue for work, so I'm
just getting tired of it.

cf. the many results on

Given that those lines are mostly the same that were removed from the
other file, minus the many that were identical and so factored out,
plus just a few that actually fix a scaling bug resp to the hardware,
making less as total, and so squared a lesser number of bugs, and that
I've explained it already too much I'd rather keep it slim instead of
adding english bugs, besides I'm french.

And my patch has been ignored several times too, still I'm here.
