Because I made a mistake; I intended to delete that part from that patch.
It's part of the [3/4] patch I sent you earlier today.

Sure.  While we're nitpicking, how about deleting the 'oem=' and `product='
from the printk?  It currently looks like:

SAL 3.1: oem=HP, product=, version 2.21

How about instead it reading

SAL 3.1: HP  version 2.21

(if we filled in the product field, it'd read something like
SAL 3.1: HP rx2600 version 2.21

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
