This does seem to be a good idea. I had some other thoughts about
where to place the
it87_lock.c file. One thought was to move the lock into the
drivers/mfd directory and
completely decouple the lock from the watchdog or the hwmon
directories. The mfd/Kconfig
would contain the IT87_LOCK.

I am new at this. Exactly where do you list the patch version. I put
v2 in the subject line.
The only difference between the 2 patch sets was that each of the patches has a
more verbose body section explaining the contents of the patch and
each of the sub patch
Subject line reflected what was happening in that sub patch. I also
made sure I had the
"In-Reply-To" entry in the patches.

Where in the patch do you discuss the changes made with respect to the
previous patch.

When I send out the next set of patches do I have to send out the
entire patch set marked as v3.
