Hartley, I was going to mention this for your previous
series, and now that you've sent another huge set of
patches I must make a note of this.

Every single one of your patches applies with one-line of
patch 'fuzz', like this:

davem@...set:~/src/GIT/linux-2.6$ patch -p1 <diff
patching file drivers/infiniband/hw/amso1100/c2_provider.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 760 with fuzz 1.

And GIT rejects such patches entirely:

davem@...set:~/src/GIT/linux-2.6$ git apply --check --whitespace=error-all diff
error: patch failed: drivers/infiniband/hw/amso1100/c2_provider.c:760
error: drivers/infiniband/hw/amso1100/c2_provider.c: patch does not apply

So I had to add all of your patches to my tree by hand, one by one,

I refuse to do this for so many more patches.  Could you generate
patches that apply accurately?
