This is a much better effort at splitting up the CVS differences than
the last one I saw, but there are still some problems. In particular,
you've aimed the patch series at the CVS HEAD branch, which isn't what
we want to do. We want to merge to mainline the "for_linus" branch ,
not HEAD. The HEAD branch has a bunch of compatibility code so that
the code can work standalone against a range of kernels - this should
not be merge. Also it has several things that are there because they
kind-of work, but are really too ugly to live and should not be merged
Some more specific comments coming, on the individual patches.
Oh, and CCing Pavel Roskin <proski@xxxxxxx> the other orinoco
maintainer would be a good idea, too.
