Hello Sudip,

This is a first for me, so thank you for the comments!

Regarding not including the maintainers in the To: list of the e-mail, good
point! In this case should I resend the patches after making sure that I include
Greg Kroah-Hartman, Larry Finger and Jes Sorensen's e-mail addresses in the To:
list? ( reports their names as the maintainers, and based on
the commit history, they are the major contributors and/or gate-keepers to this
staging driver.)

Actually, my first name is Vefa, and the "M" is for my middle name, for which I
only use an initial, as otherwise everyone ends up addressing me with my middle
name. Now, the question would be: Why is my middle name placed before my first
name? I realize this is quickly becoming off-topic for the mailing lists. If you
would like to learn more, I can explain the reasons in a private discussion.

Thanks again,
