Subject: RE: [PATCH v3] video: hyperv: hyperv_fb: refresh the VM screen by
 force on VM panic

Ping again -- any one has further comment for the v3 version?

It looks the framebuffer layer's Tomi and Jean-Christophe are out recently?
Recently I don't see mail from them since Jul 1 and Jul 8 in the lists.

Though the patch belongs to driver/video/fbdev/, it only changes hyper-v stuff
and only changes one file and the patch itself is straightforward IMO.

So, hi Greg and all, 
If you think the patch itself is OK, may I know if it's OK for the patch to go
into Greg's char-misc.git tree, as some other hyper-v patches did?

Please let me know what's the next step I should do. 
I appreciate your reply.

Thanks!
