Dear Phil,

Thanks for the "good job". These words always sound very rewarding :)

Please read my reply to Dan's message. I have decided to go through a 
different approach and make two patches for the semaphores => condition 
variables and a third for removing a duplicate 'if' statement in that  
rtw_cmd_thread() where now we have the semaphores.

As I wrote in that reply, I hope that you and Dan agree with me on this 
different approach to fix rtw_cmd_thread().

P.S.: No need to apologize at all :)

I had noticed that you haven't been around for a while. I would have 
appreciated a review from you (and Larry) on the series of 32 patches that 
Pavel Skripkin and I co-developed and submitted some weeks ago.

However, I am 100% sure that you really had some important reasons for not 
being here.
