This wasn't meant against you. your patch is on the list, so
we can discuss and improve and finally apply it, which is
the usual procedure for Linux development.

I just want you to understand that this isn't going against
you personally, or against Hauppauge. It's just the
normal way of Linux development, and all other patches should
get the same treatment. The goal is to get better patches.

Your work is highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Johannes
