I'll second that. But standard kernel or not, noflushd will definitely
have sard support as soon as this sunny springtime starts to endanger the
beloved paleness of my skin. From reading the patch as it stands now,
there's only one gripe I have: the current fields are all associated to a
descriptive tag in the first row. Stephen, could you please add tags for
the new items as well? This enables userland parsers to be much more
robust when someone feels like changing the layout.
