Hi all,

I will reverse a part of this e-mail to make replying easier.

This may be true, I can't recall those specific mails...

But this is uncalled for.

IIRC there was, indeed, a long technical discussion about how to
connect the Bluetooth chip to the 'UART'.

I've seen Neil patches, and I've seen patches by Nikolaus.

Both appear to have their problems. I think it's fair to:

- Listen carefully to all arguments.
- Have a benevolent dictator, which we have, look into the problem
- Only 'shut up' after a thorough technical analysis has been made
about both approaches to the problem.

Both may have their merit in a number of ways. Don't just close your
eyes, put your fingers in your ears and say 'I can't hear you!'. We
are all adults, or at least, we should be in behaviour. The Linux
system has grown so much _beacuse_ of people working together. Calling
each other names and exiling them will _not_ solve the problem.
