Subject: Re: [PATCH 00/27] Fix common bug in most nand drivers not showing
 a device in sysfs

I wonder if anyone else will fix this in a maintainer-approved style 
which doesn't use these evil leftovers from C666 called functions.

Or will the sysfs for most NAND drivers be knowingly broken forever?

Regards,

Alexander Holler
