Highlight of the day: Calendar updates from Lotus Notes are now automatically sent – via procmail – to my mobile toy^H^H^Hphone.

I spent most of the day today working on the Other Project. On the Linux/Xen front I partook in the usual merging activity, as well as testing djwong’s aic94xx patches and reviewing Laurent’s calgary-locate-bbar patch. I’m very happy with this patch, it allows us to get rid of an awful hack – going from dev->bus->number to RIO node ID and BBAR address. It’s awful because it relies on dev->bus->number and the formula being used remaining stable across kernel, BIOS and chipset revisions, which is highly unlikely. In fact, what prompted Laurent’s patch was the forumla being wrong for an x460 configured in a certain way. With the patch we now get the right values for each PHB from the BIOS supplied tables.
