Ahh! It's new code, sorry, forgot that.

Please have a look at http://linuxbios.org/Development_Guidelines to
learn most if not all you need to know to submit a patch.

Also, when submitting patches, please make sure they apply cleanly to
the very latest revision of the tree.

The simplest way to do this is to always keep your own tree updated
by running svn up now and then, or when you see a new revision
announced on the list. After an update, there may be conflicts that
need to be resolved manually by you if you have been working on code
that was also changed in the new revision.

Feel free to ask the list if you run into trouble!
