Hi Mauro,

Please don't forget to explicitely list Laurent in To: or CC:.

About this, I've noticed two issues with these patches:

Creates a bttv-cards.c.orig file.

Creates a tvaudio.c.orig file.

I would also suggest that you limit the length of the patch file names. v4l_716_from_markus_rechberger_mrechberger_gmail_com_ludovico_cavedon_cavedon_sssup_it_mauro_carvalho_chehab_mchehab_brturbo_com_br_.patch is a bit too long IMHO ;)

No, it doesn't work that way. i2c patches are applied before the v4l
patches in -mm, and I doubt Andrew is going to reorder patchsets every
now and then. There simply are too many dependencies to deal with.

So, just send your v4l patches to Andrew when they're ready. I'll send
my i2c patches (including Laurent's) when they are ready, with a note
to Andrew on how to fix drivers which might break, and he'll deal with
that just fine.

You shouldn't underestimate Andrew's ability to deal with conflicts of
all sorts. He's damn good at it.

When either the i2c or v4l patches finally get merged into Linus' tree,
the other one of us will have to update his patchset. That shouldn't be
difficult either.
