Subject: [RC6 Bell Chime] Re: [PATCH 00/24] rfcomm fixes

Hi all,

- 3.14-RC6 has been cut
- this regression is known and reported since the merge window
- the fix (revert of 3 patches) is known for over a month now
- but it's still not in mainline
- my polite ping request from last week seems to have provoked exactly 0 (zero) response.


Hope that WILL be heard somewhere ...


PS. on the informative side the 3 commits to be reverted are:

f86772af6a0f643d3e13eb3f4f9213ae0c333ee4 Bluetooth: Remove rfcomm_carrier_raised()
4a2fb3ecc7467c775b154813861f25a0ddc11aa0 Bluetooth: Always wait for a connection on RFCOMM open()
e228b63390536f5b737056059a9a04ea016b1abf Bluetooth: Move rfcomm_get_device() before rfcomm_dev_activate()
