if I get the status right for this one, we have from Klaus a fully
qualified patch according to README.patches.


Further we have at least an ACK from Steven and no NACK so far.


But that ACK also means that he will not forward it himself to Mauro
through one of his development repositories by a pull request.

This would cause a signed-off-by from him being in the commit chain.

In this case direct mail to Mauro is requested to let him know a patch
on the list is considered to be ready, or wait until he gets aware of

Igor has added some more S2 capable devices, IIRC.
