Re: [PATCH] 2.5.X Directory move for old Wavelan/Netwave drivers

Just a suggestion, if you are moving a bunch of files around, you might
e-mail Linus a small script he can cut-n-paste to move the files, and
then provide a patch for the stuff that is actually changed... I don't
want to speak for Linus but at least for the rest of LKML it would make
the patches smaller and easier to read. This was a pretty large patch
to the CC to lkml...

Even if the files are renamed then changed, IMHO a better submission
will include
        mv dir1/foo.c dir2/foo.c
        mv dir1/bar.c dir2/bar.c

and then patch dir2/{foo,bar}.c....
