Subject: [GIT PATCH] driver core patches for 3.3-rc1
I tried to create a signed tag for this pull request. It's call
"driver-core-3.3-rc1-bugfixes" in the repo below, but when I did:
git request-pull master git:// driver-core-3.3-rc1-bugfixes > msg.txt
I got the text below, no signed tag with the wording that I added to it
that I could see. Now I am still using git, is that why? If
so, I'll go build 1.7.9 as I see that is now out today.
Did I mess something up? I created the tag with:
git tag -u -s driver-core-3.3-rc1-bugfixes driver-core-linus
Could it be that the tag and the branch are at the same point in the
tree right now? Or something else?
The wording I put in the tag is:
Here are some patches for the 3.3-rc1 tree.
It contains the removal of the sysdev code, now that all users
of it are gone, as well as some sysfs bugfixes that have been
reported by users. There are also some documentation updates
here as well.
All of these have been in the linux-next tree for the past week.
