Ok, thanks for sending this, but there are some procedural things
you'll need to check before we can go ahead.  We generally prefer
patches to be sent inline, rather than as attachments (it makes adding
review comments much easier), and you'll need to apply a Signed-off-by
line before I could merge it.  There are more details on the
procedures for submitting patches at:
