Wow, I never thought I would be arguing licensing issues on any mailing list, let alone lkml. The whole thing got started on the LSM mailing list with this posting.
Time to go write some code to clense myself...
The Hotplug PCI driver is coming along nicely. The new structures for the core code look workable and should enable others to implement their drivers quite easily (others in this context is probably me...)
Did just find out about the "Atlas" project that Intel and other companies are working on. It's like PCI Hotplug, but think of adding and removing entire PCI busses at once. Hope it works out to something that actually is useful.
Well, I'm the current Linux USB maintainer for a bit, while the "real" maintainer takes a vacation and gets settled into a new job. Previously when I have been the temporary maintainer, big, contriversial patches have been sent in (HID happened, along with a big usb-uhci vs. uhci debate), but so far it's been pretty smooth...
Unless you count the whole "swap over USB devices" debate :)
