        You missed a couple of comments. I sent the more complete
version of the exact same patch a few weeks ago to Jeff Garzik, you
may want to check with Jeff what the status on this.
        Of course, I would prefer the "more complete" version to go
in.

        By the way, because of Jeff's turnaround, we are going to have
this problem a lot. All my pending IrDA patches are listed on my web
page, you may want to check it :

        Thanks for the good work !

        Jean

P.S. : Did you manage to set-up the crossover serial cable ?
