Hi Brian,

thanks for your testing, it is very valuable.  I'm very glad that the code
is working,  though the real credit should go to Julian Anastasov, I just
up-ported the code.

I will try and make another up-port to 2.6.33, which is likely to be a bit
more involved than the port to 2.6.18, as quite a lot of changes have
passed under the bridge between 2.6.18 and 2.6.33.

On a personal note, I'm in the process of moving at the moment.
Unfortunately that is likely to impact on my time for the next month or so.
