Not sure Avi what you mean but as far as I know Alexander is working on
this file so he need just time to finish (we all have other duties you know :).
So I think the idea Peter proposed could be merged right after Alexander
will have finished. At least the Peter's suggestion was recorded in this
thread which means it will *not* be lost eventually. Or you meant something
else (yep, I could have it translated plain wrong)?

What I mean is that hpa's patch makes the kernel better, so it should be applied. I'm not sure what else Alexander is working on, but I do hope the improvements will be more concrete.

(Alexander, I apologise for being so discouraging; but I really feel these improvements are marginal)

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
