No complaints here.  When I made myself and my machines available to help
with this regression, that included the possibility of errors.

I just send a message with the output of 'dmesg | grep ^ignoring', along
with the full 'dmesg' output gzipped.  My crummy ISP webmail interface
may have choked on it, so if you don't get that output before you see
this, then let me know so I can resend it.  (It's over 100K, though --
should I reduce the CC line first, if I have to resend?)

*wiping tears*

I don't care if you DO make mistakes... I LOVE you guys, man!

If you folks can fix this, then I owe anybody involved a cube of their 
favorite beer!  I'm not a beer drinker myself....  I'll just have green
tea.  ;)
