I used it as the permanent address for kernel work, and there are 1011
"Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@xxxxxxxxxx>" lines in the kernel log.
If anyone wants to contact me regarding anything I did in the kernel
that is the address.
I did not use it for any non-kernel stuff, and will not use it for that
in the future.
You were asking for a single reason why I want to regain my kernel.org
account, and this is the reason.
