I see you do a lot of publicity to the GGI project :) Well, I'm sure
almost everybody wants it. All you have to do is convince Linus. Once at
least a part of it is in the standard kernel I'm sure patches will start
coming in. I'd gladly use it if it were at least a compile-time option
(I'm too lazy and too slow-connected to be downloading patches all the
time, and my box is too slow to recompile a lot).
