Linus has merged my patches, so this crash is now fixed. As I said before, you should by all means send further clean-up patches if you think they are improvements. I have no special interest in this area. I gave my opinions and advice because I was CC'd, and then submitted some patches myself because I was asked to. I can't really keep track of all the formalities. The CC list on my submissions represented the set of people I knew to be involved in the discussion. I'm sorry if you felt slighted. I just pay attention to the code, not the personalities. The most reliable way to make sure your name is associated with a change is to submit patches yourself in a form that Linus wants to merge. Thanks, Roland
