I'm still here and still responding to mhw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx You may have
gotten caught up in a spam filter. IAC... I don't recall getting any
messages. I have had contact with others on that address and I posted
to LKML back early this year that I was still alive after Andrew Morton
chimed in that I was still around and WittsEnd was still around.

You're not on a black list but CRM-114 may have caught you anyways.

I spoke with Andrew about the Computone driver when we were both
speaking at Linux Lunacy last week. I still intend to maintain it an
I've been working on the 2.6 driver. I've got a spinlock problem that
has me in a bind at the moment with the patches. I jokingly told Andrew
that he would get the patch as soon as I shot this problem and I was not
going to be like some people who sends him patches that don't even
compile. :-)

I thought the PCI stuff was there. I'll look that over and see what
needs to be done. Got some pointers to docs on what I need to update
for that? I was talking to Andrew about the spinlock problems but he
didn't say anything about PCI probing. What's missing?
