My point was : I applied these patches (which didn't work out of the
box for that matter) and reviewed them. I know there are some issues,
but after 48 patches I figured it would be good to ask for another
review before adding anything else. If you want me to fix everything,
while somebody else says there is way to much commit at this point, I
don't really know what to do...
The only thing I care about is improving the module. if it works
better with this patchset, then I'll send it for review.
