not a bug... perhaps something changed to make the VM a lot more
aggressive about handing out memory. But not a bug...

he had a few technical issues. there were quite a few threads where
Linus and DH crossed swords over how to handle hot-swap, and device
reconfiguration.. but Linus' biggest problem was with the fact that he
didn't get final say over the code, and David Hinds liked maintaining
pcmcia seperately and didn't want the extra work of having to maintain
it within the linux source.
I /think/ the way Linus sees it, is that if pcmcia-cs is seen as the
official Linux PCMCIA then Linus should have final say over it. (and
with 2.3 he's managed to force the issue).
