Default Regarding patch to the pl2303 usb-2-serial driver.

Hi

The attached patch has today been sent to the linux kernel mailing list. I'm
currently building the current precise kernel + the patch to verify the
functionallity.

I would like to have the patch included into the precise kernel. What is
needed to get the patch in?

Once it has been merged into Linus' tree then we'll likely be able to
either SRU it, or pick it up from stable updates.

Ok, so the general policy is to only include upstream patches ?

For the most part we like to stay close to upstream. It makes
maintenance a lot easier.


If Greg likes your patch, then its likely to make the 3.4 merge window
'cause it looks like a bug fix. Soon thereafter it'll bubble down via
stable updates.
