Sony Clie USB
Finally got my first report of a Clie 710 working with my Linux kernel driver. Made me very happy (hint, a short note to a open source developer about how their code works great for you is a very nice thing to do.) Also got the patch into 2.4.8-ac10 so that it should get a lot more widespread testing. I have gotten lots of reports of it not working, so there is something going on here. I'm still waiting for Sony to get back to me after my last round of questions.


Finally signed all of the GPG keys that I got at the keysigning party and pushed them out to the keyservers. Took me forever.

Put up my slides and paper of my talk right here.

Had such a good time, I need to think up another paper topic so I can go next year...

Kernel stuff

Finding someone to review my PCI Hotplug patch has been very difficult. No one wants to read through 9,000 lines of code, and I don't blame them... I'll get it into the kernel tree eventually, at least it's in Red Hat's latest kernels in their 7.2 beta.

Been doing lots of other little USB patches for different things. It seems that people are actually using the usb-skeleton.c driver to base their USB drivers on, so I've been getting some very strange emails about bugs in drivers that I have never heard of before.
