Hi Greg,

    I am sorry for having not asked you. Given that the staging process 
doesn't include network stacks, I'd thought that the correct way to go 
would be to bring the discussion to netdev first. Please understand that 
I'm not gaming, I'm just following my best understanding of the 
documentation of how to submit code. I'm really in uncharted waters here 
since all my accepted patches are tiny.

    In addition, I intend to work on the feedback I get. I'm not 
planning to have the code upstream and run away.
