Uh... I basically took what Xiaofan provided and changed IDs and that's why.
But true enough, as I think about it now, I took some parts from the original
linux.inf file so there's probably *at* *least* as much your work as mine in

I'll add you in the next version. Or should I remove the notices all
together? Personally I feel they serve two purposes: give credit and let
others know who might be a good person to ask question. I'm fine either

However, I don't see a version
of the patch with the cleaner copyright notice.

Also, please don't rename the file without
updating all the references to the original
name. Since thoses refs are in docs all over
the web ... I think it's best to just
not rename it.

Ah, haven't thought about that. I grepped Documentation/ but forgot
about grepping my personal copy of the Internet I keep in my basement. ;)

I intended a consistent naming and that's why the rename. In any way,
I'll get the old name in the next version of the patch.
