 * Initial revision
 * Revision 1.4  2005/11/4  09:15:00  baroniunas
 * Modified copyright with permission of author as follows:
 *   “If I82539.H is the only file with my copyright statement
 *    that is included in the Source Forge project, then you have
 *    my approval to change the copyright statement to be a GPL
 *    license, in the way you proposed on October 10.  Please also
 *    change my e-mail address from klemets@it.kth.se to
 *    aklemets@hotmail.com.”
 * Revision 1.3  1995/04/05  15:13:58  adj
 * Initial alpha release
 * Revision 1.2  1994/06/16  23:57:31  klemets

Also might make sense to drop the "Please also change my e-mail address from
klemets@it.kth.se to aklemets@hotmail.com." part of the message above while
making the associated change.

It probably helps to actually remove the offensive part of the patch... :-)
Comment 5 John W. Linville 2005-11-16 16:02:23 EST
The same file exists in RHEL4 and upstream, FWIW... 
Comment 7 Ernie Petrides 2005-11-17 18:21:12 EST
Removing dependency on bug 172661 (against kernel-pcmcia-cs component).
Comment 8 Ernie Petrides 2005-11-22 19:25:19 EST
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U7
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-37.10.EL).
