...speaking of which...
As some of you know, I've been working on a design for the MI bus dma
code... That has been "on hold" w/ me, due to a busy schedule.
But I haven't forgotten :-)
I've gotten some really contructive comments from Charles Hannum and
Matthias Drochner, and I think I can address Justin Gibbs's and
Matt Thomas's concerns.
I'm going to be busy next week, but might find some time to work on the
document a bit more. I'll be in Pittsburgh the entire week after that.
So, providing that I can get a new version of the design document out by
next Thursday evening, you guys will have a week to provide constructive
criticism before I return to my mail... If a consensus has been reached
by then, maybe a prototype implementation can be done in time for
the Christmas holiday! :-)
