Hello Andy.

I started checking the sources and I have a cleanup patch for

Is the stable-tracking tree supposed to compile? (perhaps part of our
task is make it compile). I had issues with pwm.h. It seems it moved
to include/linux. I guess it has to do with the recent Linux release.

I guess I should send patches against stable-tracking after testing
that they compile (if they're cleanup patches).

Should I use another tree temporally?
What should I do?

BTW, a remark is wrong:

diff --git a/include/linux/pwm.h b/include/linux/pwm.h
index 3945f80..7c77575 100644
--- a/include/linux/pwm.h
+++ b/include/linux/pwm.h
@@ -28,4 +28,4 @@ int pwm_enable(struct pwm_device *pwm);
 void pwm_disable(struct pwm_device *pwm);

-#endif /* __ASM_ARCH_PWM_H */
+#endif /* __LINUX_PWM_H */


PS: Using gmail now. I will configure mutt later for this account.
Patch might break.
