Thank you very much.

Yes, you are right ! I will talk more to you and the list before I commit
something new. As you already said, there ARE legal und political issues, and
because of that I already asked the list in one of my last mails, if we are
allowed to use that code.
From what I (and you too) saw, Utah CSS/CSL would be able to change that license,
the only question is, if OSF is willing to change it too ?

I'm really sorry for that, but I think adding some #defines to pdc.h could not
have been the problem.
I don't know any longer for sure, but I think I added a semicolon at the end of a
line in irq.h, and removed an unbalanced #if.. in irq.c, so that I could compile
vmlinux again. I really had everytime problems compiling vmlinux cleanly after
your commits, since it seemed, that you haven't tried to compile the kernel before
you committed something.
BUT: Please don't let us sue each other here... !
I PROMISE not to change and commit something in your or others current work again

As you can see, I would like to avoid that too and I'm sorry for any problems,
which showed up so far !
