Hi Alaa

Nice first patch. Everybody has to start somewhere. The description is
good, it explains 'why', which is the important thing. The signed-off-by
is there, and it looks like it did not get mangled by your mailer.

I suspect if you run ./scripts/ on the patch it will ask
you to use something other than printk(KERN_DEBUG). I guess this comes
later in the Outreach internship program, so don't worry about it. But
it is a useful script to know about.
