Mauro is not a DVB maintainer ... he is the video4linux maintainer --  
Ang Way, you did the right thing by emailing linux-dvb, please just wait
for the appropriate dvb subsystem maintainer to pick up the patch.

There is no need to email Andrew Morton directly -- patches should be sent
to subsystem maintainers, who will, in turn, push the patch into hg.

Eventually it will be sent directly to Linus through Mauro's v4l-dvb git
tree.

Anyway, Ive looked at the patch, seems correct to me... I will wait a few
days to see if anybody has any other comments, and then it will be merged
eventually ... Please just have patience.

Cheers, and thanks for your work.
