SubjectRe: [git pull] drm patches for 2.6.26-final

> >> Author: Johannes Weiner <hannes@saeurebad.de>

I did report the author here ^^, I didn't see a reported by credit on the
original email.

and I suggested this was the patch, and I was wrong, and I've rewritten
it, and not I realise the drm ioctls are as ever a really big mess, the
driver ioctls on the kernel side don't have direction bits which is really
bad.

Dave.
