Hi, Yoshifuji,

This rule would mean that any new kernel development *could* break something somewhere else? ;-)

I don't see any application uses these values for now, so I change them. It's good for kernel to provide the real MIBs information. If later on, some applications start to use these values, they can get the correct numbers without converting. Unless you can give me an broken example. :-)

Thanks

Shirley, nobody can prove that nothing will be broken. :-)
