    I don't get it. Several of us had building problems for a few
    days with some pasic driver. We posted some bug reports and
    some patches, but we put up with it for a few days...

    I believe Russell is referring to the removal of the ioctl, not the
    compile breakage.

    Why you said "building new kernels for it".
    So it confused me. It's not strictly a build issue,
    it's a run-time issue.

    That would be interesting information (although I have a vague feeling that
    it has been discussed before).

    I've been sitting on pcmcia-delete-obsolete-pcmcia_ioctl-feature.patch for
    over a year, mainly waiting for Dominik to reappear and decide what to do
    about it.

    What don't you get?

    I've said each time the PCMCIA ioctl removal topic came up that it would
    give me this precise problem. I've given details of _why_ it would cause
    me that problem. It's gone ahead inspite of that.

    Concerning the pasic driver. For **** sake, why are you bringing that
    up. I made it *perfectly* and *crystal* clear that I *WAS* *NOT* in a
    position to fix that thing - BECAUSE I WASN'T GOING TO BE IN FRONT OF A
    COMPUTER FOR VERY LONG ON THOSE DAYS. Which I knew would be the case on
    Monday morning. I _tried_ to stop the thing being merged, but Linus
    merged it anyway, and then told me he'd done that _AFTER_ I'd gone to
    bed on Monday. I tried to ensure that I was in a position to cover
    _all_ eventualities (except the one which actually occurred.)

    So, between Monday midnight and Thursday morning, when do you expect me
    to sort the resulting mess out, given that I was not even able to be
    in front of a computer until about 10pm on Tuesday and Wednesday?

    Oh, maybe you expect me to give up sleeping just for you?

    What do you want me to do? Quit because of it?

    Which is reasonable.

    How about delegate some of the control to other people ? There's something
    wrong if it has to be you that sorts it out eveyr time - especially as you
    effectively manage as many platforms as everyone else put together right
    now.

    I'll spend some time this coming weekend working out precisely what it
    requires from the ioctl interface - maybe we can have a cut-down ioctl
    interface that bolts straight on as an "add on" to the new controls
    without being too invasive, while still allowing its PCMCIA bits to
    work.

    I'd favour pushing it. If it matters someone will then fix up the problem
    platform. If it isn't pushed then it lets one obscure platform stall
    progress for everyone else.

    umm, well,

    a) as your machine still needed the ioctl code, we can assume that there
    are others out there. So it's unclear that we _can_ delete it, or change
    its interfaces.

    b) the rate of change in that code is very close to zero. I'd say just let
    it be. It's not a good use of one's time?

    I believe I pointed at the patch required to fix the problem via this
    URL:

    http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/develope....php?id=5010/1

    A subset of that patch had also already been discussed between Philipp,
    akpm and myself. The URL also shows when it was applied (though not to
    a branch of my tree I could've pushed into mainline at that stage.)

    The fix was already known... The fix had been pointed out by me during
    the various mails I got about the breakage... I'd effectively already
    approved the fix by applying it... And I had said I wouldn't be able to
    sort it until Thursday.

    Yes, maybe I should've said to Andrew "please grab this patch off this
    URL and ensure it gets to Linus ASAP." Hind sight is always a wonderful
    thing.
