What does this mean (the "[]")?

Yep, didn't know the bool type existed.

I intended to do so when I send the patch of course. I didn't know it would be so frowned
upon in a RFC, I thought it would be enough to note the existence of the commented out
code under known problems, as I did in RFC part 0. Lesson learned!

This function is (indirectly) called by the receive callback for packet type ETH_P_HSR
(hsr_rcv() in hsr_main.c). If I recall correctly, I tried GFP_KERNEL first but the kernel
complained over sleeping in atomic context. I'll check it out again.

Thank you for your time. I will take care of these issues when I get back from my vacation. :)
