That's what my eyeball of the patch showed.

You can blame that last part.  Prafulla had sent several versions of
the patch to me for review.  I had gotten the mistaken impression that
you were not longer interested in em (which appears to be in error),
so I didn't have him bounce them off of you first.  Please accept my
appologies for not suggesting you be in the loop more.

I gave him my signoff on the patch a few hours after you commited to
em, but I didn't notice this until after he'd committed (gotta love
qwest, nuf said).  I soon realized my mistake, and would like to offer
a public appology for it.
