And how exactly does that force you to use -current? Nothing keeps you
from applying your fixes to the 4.0 branch. I didn't follow the OMAP
changes, mainly because that's not exactly my work area but if you tell
me what exactly needs to be pulled into 4.0 ( ideally in terms of
commit messages on email@example.com ) I'll see to it - should
be trivial, the branch isn't exactly old.
Anyway, you're right about the maintainer problem.
Besides that - how does your code depend on SA threads?
