You seem plenty comfortable enough to offer quite sensible patches!

As for CVS, the usual tutorial is good.
My favorite commands (for which I have aliases) are
	cvs -z9 update -dfP ...
	cvs -z9 commit ...
Of course, there are also
	cvs -z9 add ...
	cvs -z9 remove -f ...
Sometimes, I use
	cvs -z9 diff -u -r 1.4 -r 1.6 foo.c
That's about all I use, most of the time.

In the hope that our code will be maintainable and mergeable
with upstream kernel trees, we have a policy of mimicking
what happens upstream.

Oops. I have removed it from CVS (must be visible in the Attic on ViewCVS)
but indeed, an old copy remains in my build tree, that may have masked
mistaken includes that remain throughout the code.
Any reference to it must be removed, as in the upstream kernel.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Can you commit that change? ;-)
