Re: [PATCH 3/3] - Add support for acpi_load_table/acpi_unload_table_id

From: Aaron Young <ayoung_at_google.engr.sgi.com>
Date: 2006-12-16 07:48:24
  Per Len's request:

      I understand and agree this project and the contribution         
      are public and that a record of the contribution (including all
      personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is
      maintained indefinitely. I thereby license this patch to be
      redistributed under any license (GPL or non-GPL) consistent
      with the project.

  PS. We'd like this to get into 2.6.20. If there's anything
  we (John K. and I) can do to help, please let us know.

  Thanks,

  -Aaron Young
