I'm kind of curious; "deregister" is used quite often in the kernel:
Not to mention in various comments and documentation. Deregister,
according to www.m-w.com (and many other dictionaries), is not a word.
Is there some sort of historical significance to this being used, in
place of "unregister"?
-- "... being a Linux user is sort of like living in a house inhabited by a large family of carpenters and architects. Every morning when you wake up, the house is a little different. Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed." - Unix for Dummies, 2nd Edition -- found in the .sig of Rob Riggs, email@example.com - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
