Patches need to have a "signed-off-by:" line in order to be applied.

Also, please do not gpg sign your patches, that only causes problems
with our tools.

Adding a copyright for a few lines changed is not really correct.

Is this a build fix not related to the bug above?

Also, network patches need to be sent to the network maintainers, they
usually miss them if you only copy the linux-kernel list.

Try using the scripts/get_maintainer.pl script on your patch to figure
out who to send the patch to, and also the scripts/checkpatch.pl script
to verify that you got everything correct before you send it off.

Also, for a bugfix like this, it would be good to send it to the
stable@...nel.org developers when it goes into Linus's tree as others
are reporting problems with this driver in the 2.6.31 kernel.

thanks,

greg k-h
